When a child is relinquished for adoption, the birth parents are not the only ones to grieve. The birth grandparents grieve the loss of a grandchild, as well as hurt for their hurting children. Please, if you have anything to submit for this page, please do so! I'm troubled that I couldn't offer more for you, but sadly, there seems to be such little support for Lifegrandmothers. I dedicate this page to my Mom, who has been a tremendous support to me.
