I asked BubHub if they would be kind enough to start a forum for those of us who are 'parenting again'.... who through circumstances beyond our control, are now parents to our grandchildren, nieces, nephews, or children of close friends, through the wide variety of ways that extra kids come to us.
I'm looking forward to meeting other people who - just when they thought it was safe to buy a 2 bedroom inner city terrace and live the cafe lifestyle - suddenly found themselves with a 'second parenting lease on life'.
Come on in! The water is warmer the second/third/fourth time around.
