Grandparents raising their grandchildren are taking on these kids because family’s important, because families do better when they are with family. 

Gail and her husband are caregivers to their 14-year-old grandson Bryson. Raising Bryson, who has special needs, has its challenges and COVID has made it even harder. As grandparent caregivers, Gail has struggled to find resources for grandparents raising grandchildren and founded an organization to help others in similar situations. Despite the challenges, she is optimistic that with the right support, Bryson will be able to realize his potential.
