A Kinship Guide to Rescuing Children packs an amazing amount of inspiration, energy, and encouragement in an easy-to-read guide for relative caregivers. This book serves as a practical guide for helping readers understand the importance of creating a support network, navigating social service systems, and establishing relationships that will thrive within the dynamics of these relative families. Relative caregivers often struggle with the hardships of raising children without any support or encouragement, and they are truly the unsung heroes for these children in our communities. Finally, a book that not only offers resources, education and practical advice for these families, but illustrates the hope and inspiration that it takes for these families to survive. Melissa R.
