Join and agree to let a family near you adopt you as their grandma! The grandma will mentor the child and provide lots of TLC and attention to the children, just like a real Grandma does! Of course, bonding will occur, friendship will occur, you will root and support that child or those children like they were your own. Doesn't even have to be expensive, it is amazing what kids will talk to you about as you knit or crochet, do word finds or write, or watch t.v. together, maybe dance together, decorate together, picnic or fish together, take in a day at the free museums especially the ones with live music. Just do it together!
