Lean on me
When you're not strong
I'll give you hope
I'll help you carry on
We all need somebody to lean on.
from the song
Nothing is more true than this song when it comes to grandparents raising grandchildren. Together we can ease the pain, share the good times and help one another to grow and be the best we can be for our grandchildren, our families and ourselves. To be with others who know exactly what we are going through is so healing. Some have been there and done that and can help us past the rough spots and can give us hope that we too can not only survive this new adventure of raising grandchildren but flourish and bring forth a new generation of responsible human beings. What better goal could a person have.
