    Hardly - my mom (their only living grandparent) lives too far away and she never approved of our adoptions, so it's been a tough haul for them. Our older kids had wonderful relationships with their grandparents until they married and left home. By then, they had moved away and it was...

    In your grandchildren's lives? We get to see 2 of our grandchildren fairly often, but 3 are in Northern BC and we only get to see them about every 3 years (way too long). The other 3 are with our dd's ex and he will not allow us to see them. What roll do you play in your grandchildren's...
