      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

The CPS Experience (possible triggers)

I hope so, too, @neverimagined. But I also hope that the venting helps.

My heart goes out to you for the impending loss of your baby GS. How tragic!

I feel for the parents, too, of course. It definitely sounds to me as if that CPS worker was acting out her own beliefs/prejudices (against people w/ addictions, etc.). DS (dear son) and his GF (girlfriend) are very lucky that they had you to help them fight her.

Also, bless you for having been there for your then-niece/DD (dear daughter)! I'm sorry she's angry about the time you've given to DS' situation. Perhaps when you take that leave of absence, you and she will be able to enjoy some special time together, even if it's just relaxing w/ a good DVD.

I'm glad you're going to take that leave. And I think it was very wise to get into counseling. Hope you continue to reach out here, as well. (((Hugs!)))

I'm sure summer break can't get here soon enough for you. I work in the schools as well (library services) so know how draining the kids can be, especially so close to the end of term...I work with the high schools. Even if you just take a couple of days for yourself will help tremendously.
