Impact Monadnock believes that advocacy for children and families in the Monadnock Region is crucial to accomplishing its mission and vision. Stories from our friends, neighbors and colleagues provide windows into the realities of being a parent, grandparent or caregiver in New Hampshire.
The story that follows comes from “Lisa,” a Monadnock region grandmother who took custody of her two grandchildren. The story reveals some of the personal and legal challenges that Lisa has faced as a caregiver for two young boys, and it speaks to the importance of taking a stand for the rights of caregivers. The story was written by Rachel Therrien, an intern at Impact Monadnock.
