I've been writing this blog for five years now. There isn't a whole lot a person can say about the subject at this point.
Either you support grandparents adopting their grandchildren when they can't be brought up by their parents, or you do not. Either you support giving grandparents who honestly have examined themselves and found out they can't raise their grandchildren, and respect that, or you do not. I'm certainly not going to waste my time trying to convince child welfare workers they don't understand, nor am I going to waste another moment on the Lulubelles and Juniors of this world, who think they are entitled to the lives of their children simply because they gave birth to them.
I remember a year and a half ago, I mentioned in an entry that several friends were leaving homeschooling in favor of back-and-mortar school. Toward that end, it appears we will most likely be joining the throng.
There are new opportunities every day for academically gifted kids, beyond what the regular public school offers. The Mister and I are planning on moving again, to a place where those possibilities can be obtained. I will be driving a lot and working part time to make those possibilities happen.
I might pop in once or twice, should something happen in the news that deals with the circumstances of grandparents raising grandkids. And I'll leave up a set of links to help grandparents new to the idea of taking over where their adult children have tragically left off.
If you have questions, or concerns, send a comment or email to the addy attached to this blog. Have a wonderful life, and enjoy those grandkids!
