Himself: Cares no matter what. When he took me on, he took on all those unexpected grandkids. There are occasions when I want either to divorce him or seal him into a closet forever, and then there are the days when he is my shining star. Like this weekend.
Herself: Most of you know that many of our grandkids were adopted into families that already had kids or adopted other children later. They all became ours, and we really appreciate these kids’ parents and the efforts they make daily to raise these children in wonderful environments. Dan has Learning Disabilities, and his sister Moriah has ADHD. There has been a long struggle to get them through school, and now they move on into college. (Names changed so OD is happy.)
Gratitude: Moriah and Dan’s parents.
Two hours of music, speeches and ceremony, marked the end of another life stage and a move on into another. We schmoosed, hugged….never enough, and ate in the patio of a little cottage they own following the graduation. We are so grateful these kids ended up in the arms of these wonderful parents.
