Time to Come Off the Porch: Journey of Healing from the Wounds of Kinship Care in the Black Family explores the relational problems experienced by African-American women reared in the system of “kinship care.” This book outlines the history of the Black family, describes attachment issues and familial struggles in kinship care, shares future hopes for the kinship care system, offers support to those from similar situations, while providing a personal glimpse into my life as I wrestled with my “enoughness.” The Black family has a strong foundation rooted in the tradition of preservation. Minimal conversation has been had regarding the psychological issues developed by children in kinship care situations. Not much information exists outlining how children raised in kinship care family’s feel about their experience. This book seeks to fill in some of the missing information.
