Rights and Responsibility

Having two little boys again is hard.  You don't fit in with the "normal" grandparents and you don't fit in with other "parents" as you are really neither but how many people can turn around and say that they have had the pleasure of doing it all again and seeing their grandchild evolve into happy healthy young men? The pleasure they give us with their little remarks at the most appropriate time. When you are feeling as if the world is against you and a little hand goes in yours and a little voice tells you they love you and you are the best Nannie is something you cannot get anywhere else.  It makes all the hassles of the court cases and disappointment worth it."

In this section we cover the two main concerns you will have at this stage on your journey:

  1. What are my legal rights and responsibilities as a caregiver?

  2. What financial help is there for me to support the children in my care?
