A Rollercoaster Ride
When the call came all those years ago that we had to collect our grand-daughters from the Police station, we had no thought as to how the next stage of our lives was going to be.... a huge emotional roller-coaster with many dips of feelings of frustration and despair, but also highs as we have watched our grand-daughters achieve and make their way in life. It has been financially draining; Court cases, the expense of a loft conversion and then moving to get away from wagging tongues. Our family dynamics changed dramatically and we lost friends but out of all the upheaval and chaos, we have met some wonderful fellow Kinship Carers who we meet up with online and at different events. They have given us much needed support and friendship and most importantly, have enabled us to keep going through the very tough times.
