GKSN: GRANDPARENTS of Kids with SPECIAL NEEDS
The Sibling Support Project and the Kindering Center are pleased to announce GKSN—Grandparents of Kids with Special Needs. We believe that no one understands a grandparent’s unique joys and concerns better than another grandparent of a child with special needs.

On the GKSN website, grandparents will have a chance to meet other grandparents through Yahoogroup or Facebook groups, share ideas for supporting their kids and grandkids, and even post pictures of their grandkids!

Please visit http://cts.vresp.com/c/?SiblingSupportProjec/a87fdd99c9/eccbd7dee0/b7c0abaea3 and help spread the word!
