Introduction to group

My husband and I just received co-guardianship of my 10 year old niece after my father (her biological grandfather) who had adopted her at age 6 passed away in November. I’m hoping the group is still active & can provide me some ideas for support resources. My niece is in counseling both at school & outside, but I just can find anything local (like groups) for myself!


This group isnt very active anymore but there are still a few of us left! Have you checked your states children and youth website? There should be a link for foster and adoption resources with links or phone numbers to help find a group. Also my state (PA) has a very active foster and adoption facebook group, so you might want to check there. Good luck!

I wish there was more activity on this group. I could really use it! I’ve adopted 2 bio nieces (one is 10) and have had guardianship of 2 others. I haven’t found a whole lot in my state (UT) that addresses the unique challenges of kinship adoption.
