Linda Alves and her husband are parents with a child still in the home and are grandparents raising 5 of their 7 grandchildren. The Alves made a choice to bring their grandchildren into their home when the parents aren't able to take care of them. They live in North Carolina.
Linda created the Facebook page 'Kinship without Support' for the grandparents that step in. The Alves and other grandparents have found legally they have no rights.
