  Kinship Care - Adoption Encyclopedia
Kinship arrangements are likely to involve caregivers who are older, in poor health, have less education and are poorer than nonrelative foster parents.
In addition, critics argue that kinship care providers are not as thoroughly screened by state social workers as are nonrelative foster parents, nor are the children's cases monitored as closely.
According to CQ Researcher, because of problems with kinship care some states have established a "subsidized guardianship" arrangement, wherein the relative receives a monthly subsidy and is established as the child's legal guardian.

 Kinship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kinship is the most basic principle of organizing individuals into social groups, roles, and categories.
It was originally thought to be determined by biological descent, a view that was challenged by David Schneider in his work on Symbolic Kinship (1984, A Critique of The Study of Kinship).
The crux of his argument was that anthropologists had founded the domain of “kinship” on the notions of human reproduction and the biologically defined relatedness of their own Euro-American culture.

 Kinship Care Section 3
Our presumption is that most kinship foster cases are defined in the CPS by their "kinship" status instead of by their "foster care" status, so we would expect that the foster care category is comprised mostly of those children living in non-relative foster family placements.
Although a number of characteristics describe the children in kinship foster care, the only personal characteristic that is available to us from the census data to describe the children in kinship living arrangements is their age, defined within two broad categories.

 Kinship Readers Guide
Kinship in ancient Israel and Judah, as well as in first-century Palestine, was affected by the political sphere especially in terms of law—mostly in terms of deviance—for example: incest (Lev 18:6-19), rape (Deut 22:23-29), adultery (Lev 20:10), marriage (Lev 21:7; Deut 25:5-10), divorce (Deut 24:1-4), and inheritance (Num 27:1-11; Luke 12:13).
Kinship was affected by religion in terms of purity, for example: intercourse regulations (John 7:53—8:11) and the status of spouses (Deut 7:1-4; Luke 1:5).
And finally, kinship was interactive with the economic sphere in terms of occupations (Mark 1:16-20), and the distributions of dowry, indirect dowry, bridewealth, and inheritance (Luke 12:13).

 Kinship   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Kinship, therefore, has many facets: a loving family; adults who care; permanence and predictability; roots to strengthen one’s attachment to life; an opportunity for each child to have a fair chance at life; ties that bind; community that cares and protects; maintaining connections; and an individual’s birthright.
Public bureaucracies serving children re-invented “kinship placements” to imply use of extended biological relatives as an an alternative to non-relative foster care, but often this means leaving young children with their poor and elderly grandmothers without major services or support.
And, if the spirit of kinship is to be a signal for health in a community, all aspects of community governance and social systems must demonstrate support for the child in his family.

 Calculating Kinship
Many parts of life in all societies are impacted by kinship, and in most societies kinship relations influence things like who one can and can not marry, who one must show respect to, who one can joke with, and who one can count on in a crisis.
Kinship has the advantage that 'it appears to be the one area of anthropological discourse where the ground rules are clearly laid down...' (Barnard and Good 1984:2).
Despite recent theoretical trends away from kinship as a central focus in the discipline, in dealing with actual case studies kinship cannot be avoided as an important nexus of structuration and construction in human affairs, even within so-called complex societies such as our own.
