Grandparents As Parents is a great resource for grandparents who are in the position of raising or providing temporary respite for their grandchildren. The authors are pioneers in providing support for grandparents. The information is very candid and honest in its discussion of the experience that grandparents have and are having. They share many first hand stories from grandparents and provide much needed resources. It is an easy and excellent read. I highly recommend it.
I have been involved in the field of Human Services for 30 plus years. I teach in the field of Human Services for Purdue University Global. Allene is a stay at home "Lolli", after spending many years in the Healthcare field. We have 3 adult children and in May, 2018, we adopted our granddaughter, who is 6 years-old. We have had her since she was 5 months old. At the end of 2019, we moved to Mount Airy, North Carolina, as a part of a plan to downsize and give Allene the chance to retire, and be at home full-time. We are devoted to making a difference in Sebellah's life and also in the lives of other grandparents raising grandchildren. View all posts by grandthoughtsfromlolliandpops
