One of the more startling things that I've come across in this program though.. I present at a bunch of back-to-school nights where the administration showcases new programs and policies the school is involved in. I walk around a lot making sure parents understand the surveys, try to field what questions I can, etc. And on more than one occassion, I've come across an adult asking if they can sign up a child they are a legal guardian for, or a grandparent of. Sometimes we forget, with our largely intact families, that life can really throw people curveballs. Lord knows how many people become legal guardians of children because their best friends or sisters or brothers unexpectedly pass and they're handed this little person to take care of from here on out. It's a serious test of character and flexibility and spirit. I salute them all.
