Kinship Care Blog Back in Action

Now, about this delayed blog - I spent a big part of the summer trying to establish a new website for Chicago Road Publishing and the book A Kinship Guide to Rescuing Children for Grandparents Raising Grandchildren and Other Relatives As Parents, www.chicagoroadpublishing.com . It was a bugger of a task that kept me from communicating with you through the blog about the news in Kinship Care. On page four of that website is the newsletter, Kinship Care Notes, which is published monthly and will have a great deal of information from kinship care services all across the country. Be sure to check it often as well as specials on purchasing the book. The blog, www.kincare.blogspot.com will contain updates on urgent news and periodic ramblings from me (Tita) about the issues facing kinship care families. I also have articles appearing on the Detroit Fox 2 News online resource called 50PlusPrime. Check the latest thoughts about the OTHER kinship care – home care for frail adult family members: http://www.50plusprime.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/TNP.showArticle/TNPArticlePK/336393B6-19B9-EB12-B09588337D1B0CB4.cfm . I promise to keep this blog relevant and timely in the months ahead. Thank you so much for your visit. Your feedback is always appreciated. Those of you who are kinship families and those service providers who work with kinship families, your efforts are so valued. You are all unheralded heroes in our world. Thank you.
Affectionately,
Tita

Tita, I am speaking to a group of grandparents raising their grandchildren. After five years of intervening in crises for my grandson, my husband and I took full guardianship of our grandson, now 10. I'm looking forward to following your blog and hopefully will purchase your book soon. It is so needed. I am a counseling intern at Catholic Charities in Muskegon.

Thank you so much for your kind words, Joyce, and especially for your good work in kinship care. The time before actually taking the reins of kinship care is so often the hardest because everyone is in limbo, yet the children keep on growing. Check out the past blogs for any information that may be helpful and the website for a monthly newsletter, www.chicagoroadpublishing.com. I hope you will keep in touch. Affectionately, Tita
