My husband & myself are Carers of our 2 grandkids .Since our daughter got mized up with Drugs at 15 she’s not able to care for them . it’s hard putting our dreams aside to look after our Grandies 13 & 5 ,now The eldest has been with. Us since a baby as too the 5 yr old .
No way could we see them in welfare ,as hear such heartbreaking stories .,yes some Carers are brilliant but we couldn’t risk them being a number on a government list .So here we are Loki after them till there read to move into there own home one day .
It’s been hard road but to see them grow healthy ,happy & loved .Sadly being drug babies they have problems ,but we don’t get help with this Got told by Pediatrician to deal with it ! I’ve had broken windows ,thing thrown at me .& we can’t get any help from Family S A ,seem to pass the buck ….
I just wanted to share as there is lots of us Grandparent looking after there Grandies ,darn drugs wreck lots of lives ..But we have to look out for the children as they are our future !
