Description of Kinship Care
Kinship care is the full-time care, nurturing, and protection of children by relatives, members of their families, or any adult who has a kinship bond with a child. Kinship services support the concept of children residing with a relative in a family setting, rather than being placed in an out-of-home setting.

Kimo and Sabi:
Our mom's have somethin' in common! Our mom got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology back in '93 ... She doesn't practice, though ... She's a teacher.

Oh, and mom can spell "paint," but she isn't artistic (or so she claims).
