Great Responsibility

Shirley and Chuck Young are not your ordinary great-grandparents. The North Idaho couple are raising their four great-grandchildren, ages 5 to 9. They’re praying to live long enough to see the children, who spent two years in foster care, through to graduation. Sunday, in the first installment of a two-part story in The Spokesman-Review, photographer Kathy Plonka and reporter Alison Boggs document the Youngs’ struggles and triumphs.
