Raising someone else's child is never easy. Add to this the difficulties of a generation gap and the other difficulties of aging, and you may find yourself in an overwhelming situation. But you're not alone. There are many who have experienced similar situations who can offer their advice and support. Area IV has programs to put these people in contact with each other, as well as programs to make day-to-day life easier for mature adults raising young children.
