Since those of us here are raising grandchildren, we have a different relationship with our kids. I have grieved losing the grandparent role as I've moved into a parenting role, as I expect others here have. Certainly the relationship I had with my grandson was a very special one when he lived with his parent. But the role we now have, though still special, is different.
I too have grieved the loss of grandparenting my g-children (2 & 2 siblings), my life has changed drasticlly, I've had everyone of them since birth, and was very angry at the parents for a long time, but now the shoe is on the other foot the children are now 10. 8. 7. & 4 yrs. old and it is my son that has a problem they call me mom, the only one they know,( real mom only came home to have them and left the same day). anyway my son gets angry when they call me mom, its not there fault. now I am and everyone else refers to me as mom, my role and my feelings towards the kids have changed for the better, so I AM A MOM AGAIN PROUDLY!!!!
