I am 49 and I have had stody of my grandson since May 2008. He is my daughter's son and no it was not an easy decision to make to do what I did but I felt it was best for the baby. Help! I have read some of the post and some of you have been doing this a long time. How do you deal with it all? I love my daughter but she is not a mother.
We had legal custody of our grandaughter for 8.5 years. This past summer we legally adopted her. We have given her parents visitation rights. We first asked our grandaughter who is nine how she would feel about it. She was very happy that we were doing it. We also gave her a choice aout keeping her name or taking ours. She chose to take our name. This is the only home she knows. She loves her parents, but does not want to live with them. I don't regret any of our decisions. Everything we did was for her protection. She is very well adjusted and happy. It was the best thing we could have done for her.
