Hoping that someone will have experience of adoptive grandchildren.
My daughter is unable to have children and is now adopting a little girl who is 6. The little one has had a pretty tough start in life and so I want to be the most welcoming new granny I can be. But until all the legal things go through (which I understand can take up to a year after she comes to live with my daughter) I suppose we are not technically related and I don't know how accepting she will be of me, what I can do to help her settle (and help my daughter), how to make her feel like part of the family, how to deal with all this in relation to my other grandchildren (not dissimilar in age but obviously I have known them since the day they were born..)
I suppose what I am saying is I am a bit out of my depth with the whole thing and just want to make sure I get it as right as I can. I would greatly appreciate any advice anyone might be able to offer.
