4 persons to act as surrogate grandparents for beautiful baby boy, aged 11 months, who is unwanted by biological grandparents.

All ages and both genders considered; come and be a funky granny or grandpa, young or old and give my baby the love he deserves!

The successful candidate will be rich in life experiences, funny stories and have an endless supply of love. S/he should be fully qualified in the art of cuddling, snuggling, giggling and making growly tiger noises (although training can be provided to bring the candidate up to speed with the latter). The candidate should also own a large stock of muslin squares, since dribbling is plentiful and varied.

If selected, you would take an active part in our family life and enjoy our beautiful baby with us whilst he grows.

Applicants can apply with a PM to me. Many thanks.

Not at all. In posted my story under the same name on MN, where I am a regular.

Perhaps it is an odd request. I think my baby needs grandparents. Since his don't want him, by hook or by crook I'll find him some that do.

You need to tell us more about your family relationships. Perhaps we can help with advice.

I think it would help if we had a county or city if you are looking for takers. May as well have a surrogate that is not at the opposite end of the country!

A nice bitter-sweet post I thought.

We are in a similar desert of Grandparents - though through death and illness. Our conclusion is to try and fill that 'gap' with a plethora of differently aged 'aunties' and 'uncles' - as they are easier to come by.....

Where do you live btw?

What a lovely idea. I'm sorry I can't help you but I'm sure there are people who would love to be a grandparent and I think it's lovely that you don't want your little boy to miss out on all the experiences that he can only share with a grandparent.
