The day the girls returned to me after 6 1/2 years. The author of this article for the Chicago Tribune just happened to email me requesting an interview right at the time the girls returned to me. Quite the coincidence
All over again: The joys and trials of raising grandchildren - Chicago Tribune
I continue to get emails from people wanting to know if there is a local support group in their area. I seldom know of local support groups across the country. However, there are several online support groups on facebook for grandparents raising grandchildren.
You obviously must have a Facebook account to join. In order to join our group, you must be willing to read and agree to the group rules. This is meant to be a group to inspire and help us in our time of need. It is not meant to be a place to vent anger and tell of all of the faults of the children's parents. We all need inspiration and help with the difficult situations we have found ourselves in. We can help each other but not if we stay angry. If you are interested, please check us out.
