« Getting Custody of grandchildren without a lawyer | Main | TANF assistance differs from state to state for grandparents »

I hope she can find a grandparents support group. If not close, than on the internet. I wish others could understand just how we cope and how the other side of the grandparenting family does little or nothing to help many times. I wish her the best of luck!

While doing some research for my site, I came across an article which stated that custodial grandparents most often assume the role involuntarily and "with little or no forewarning." I can't imagine having to go from being a grandmother to a mother/grandmother in the blink of an eye. My hat is off to all of you grandparents raising grandchildren!

We have seen a growing number of grandmothers visiting our store who are raising their grandchildren on their own. It is a shame that they are not eligible some form of assistance. My heart goes out to all of them. Our store is in the process of developing a discount program in an attempt to offer some help. Any suggestions would be welcome.
