Grandparent Raising Grandchildren
I’m not positive, but I think this may be where I can be helpful to others — encouraging couples to open up and be there for each other. Also to back off when their partner needs space. No one grieves the same; everyone takes different paths to get through it. If you can’t come together to realize that and make allowances for each other, you won’t get through it together.
Finding myself in a tough situation, my family needed to move. Money had been extremely tight for some time. Full financial responsibility of the grandkids was assigned to us and it drained us. We both also experienced job loss and made bad decisions during this painful time.
