    How nice of you! We are raising our granddaughter who is 16. We have had to learn how to use a cell phone, we text all of the time now, and we even have Facebook pages. It was the only way to ensure we know what she is up to all of the time. On Friday, she takes her test for a Driver's License. This might be more than we can handle!! LOL

    I agree! Here's to those who step in and take over when needed. It's a tough job! Thank you for caring for them, so they don't have to go into foster care.

    I give a BIG Salute as well! I always wonder what would happen to all the kids/teenagers if the grandparents didn't take them in. :( Praise God for the Grandparents who are doing more than they should have to do!!

    We just sent our GD off to college, seems hard to believe that she's old enough for that. LOL Thanks for thinking of us.

    I was always so proud of my parents for taking in my two nieces at the ages of 1yr and 2months, Mom and Dad raised the girls just like they were thier own. My parents had 13 children of thier own, and then raised the 2 girls..
    I know what it takes and seen first hand what my parents gave up to give these girls a home.. But I know my parents wouldn't have had it any other way..
    Heres a BIG THANK YOU to all grandparents who are raising thier grandchildren!!
