This time in my life we thought we could travel ,after raising our 2 daughters .But 1 of our daughters ended up a drug addict.Sadly she had 3 beautiful children ,who got taken by welfare .We couldnt let that happen. to our grandies Raising grandchildren.so tricky trying keep up dated but we try ,kindy & school all over again ,teaching children the ways if life .Our 12 yr old girl is a blessing ,she helps with the other kids &never complains .We are lucky to have them around .It’s not there fault & it does hurt when Mum& Dads are involvedi in activities at school ,there’s Nan &Pop instead .We love our daughter but drugs rule her life ,sadly .But Grandparents are looking after their grandkids is more &more. 12yrs have passed & I wouldn’t change it .

  • Your daughter is so lucky you are around and willing and capable of looking after her children, your grandchildren. You may see negatives, but there are way more positives in this story. It’s hard, but you’re doing a great job, believe that!


  • lucky they have you. it is hard but you love those kids so there is no question of taking them or not. they are better off with you until mum gets her life sorted out. you are protecting them. I respect that!
