"E mihi ana tooku ngakau ki a koutou nga kaimahi o tenei roopu Grandparents Raising Grandchildren. Without your information and prior to your advice and support offered through web site, support group, advocacy and phone conversations it was extremely challenging to provide the quality of life my Grandchildren now experience.
