Grandparents are supposed to enjoy their golden years right? Well for more and more grandparents raising their grandchildren has become a reality due to one sad circumstance or another. In December, 2013, the president of our organization was at her son’s football game when another mom by the name of Lori told her a story of a struggling grandmother who was making the ultimate sacrifice by raising her grandchildren. Lori explained that this loving grandma was struggling financially. At the time of this conversation, Lori did not know that Debbie was the president of a nonprofit focused on helping children/families in need.
Debbie asked Lori how this grandmother she knew would afford Christmas for her grandchildren. Lori advised that she couldn’t. That it was so incredibly difficult for this grandma to even feed the children that Christmas gifts were simply not a possibility.
The moral of this story? When you make the ultimate sacrifice for the children of another, the universe has its way of paying you back for that favor.
WISH GRANTED! Grandma received a $200 gift card from Bianca's Kids to help her shop for grandchildren.
