Description

Describes the complex nature and special support needs of kinship care. The sister who steps up to become the kinship caregiver for her nephew, the boy's mother, and the service provider tell the family's story. With two children of her own, the aunt depends on her mother's support to make the situation work. The service provider builds a trusting relationship with the mother, enabling her to accept the support of her family and the right services so she could be reunified with her son and her mother.
