Post your story
  • How wonderful that you are there for them, I hope your daughter gets help and can at least be i their lives again one day


  • I know of an Uncle and Auntie who fostered her sister’s children but under different circumstances. Thedy had been living with their Mum, then in care because she decided her priorities were different. Eventually their Dad took full custody of them, not the Mum.


  • generation


  • this story is good


  • Drugs change people we have my other halfs daughter full custody. Going through court but the thing that sucks is the judge is still pro mum as we were told even tho She is an ice addict im hoping all the lies come to surface soon.. that’s great you have ur grandkids


  • They know they are loved which what means the most and they will turn out great kids with the love and things you as Grand parents are teaching them. Grand children are a much loved blessing..and it is becoming more and more the norm these days and good on the Grand parents that take them and start once more raising children


  • Your grandchildren are very very lucky to have you!!


  • You are doing a wonderful thing. I wouldn’t get sad about nan and pop being there to help at school when it’s usually mum and dad, as it’s fantastic that the two of you are able to give these kids support, love and be there.


  • You took your grandchildren as a responsibility and commitment because love ruled in your life. You willingly put aside your own hopes and are giving your own future as a gift to these young ones. You and your husband are giving hope to them. I hope you will see them flourish under your care and that you will have health, strength and peace of mind to carry on until they are able to provide for themselves.
