      What to do if you get a "Wrong Password" message   01/21/16

      You must reset your password (even if you know it's the right one) before you can sign into the community. Thanks to the upgrade, there's an issue with passwords and signing in. The good news is that you can click here: http://community.grandparents.com/index.php?/lostpassword/ to change your password (it'll let you reuse your old one). If you can't reach the email address connected to your account then please contact the admin at latoya@grandparents.com and I'll help you sort it out.

 Welcome, TutuLovesYou! Glad to have you aboard! The 2 threads you posted in are "stickyposts/" threads pinned to the front of a forum w/ a thumbtack icon - these can be posted in at any time.

My guess is you're a LDGP  (long distance grandparent) - Is that correct? Please let us know more about yourself and your situation....

Looking forward to hearing from you some more!  :)

ETA: If you look through the threads pinned to the front of this group, you'll see a few were posted in as recently as May or March. (You can see when the latest post in a thread was on the right.)  Perhaps you would be more comfortable posting in one of those? Please feel free...

Thank you for reaching out to me RoseRed135. I have 2 granddaughters ages 4 years and 5 months old. It is very difficult being the long distance grandparent, as I know everyone here understands. I look forward to engaging conversations and emotional support through this community group.
