As a grandmother to an adopted gorgeous 6 year old, who has 'issues', I am aware of the problems and lack of understanding by non-adopters, particularly surrounding attachment issues in forming relationships and trust. I found this fabulous website that is run by two adopters which highlights some of the issues they experience as parents but also links in with family life, focusing not only on the bad points of adoption but the good. Memory box is a really useful place to discover fabulous memories, and there are lots of opportunities on the site to blog about your own experiences - whether its publicly or anonymously. Lots of useful information can be found with links through to other sites and resources. It has taught me a lot - you might be interested in having a look and 'meeting up' with other adoptive grandparents over the forum of social media. Take a look!
Have you experienced any issues as a grandparent to an adopted child?
