what about becoming foster carers for the children and having full L.A. support i.e. financially, emotionally etc. I thought that it was important to keep children within families where possible? If they become foster carers the L.A. is still responsible for the children and then maybe solicitors fees would be paid for by them? That would then include them with proceedings wouldn't it. I have sgo for my Grandson but I am a Grandma in early forties not in my sixties which I imagine to be very hardwork.
