Hello, I would like to introduce myself. I'm 54, single, work full time and raising two grandchildren. They are 6 & 7, bi-racial. I have had them for about a year and a half. I also have 4 grown kids. It has been a challenge, especially in the beginning. They have been physically and mentally abused, so they have therapy. They also have visitations with both parents who are no longer together. I feel stretched very thin most of the time and have very little time to myself. I didn't ask to be put into this position, but I also didn't want to see them go into foster care. I have felt very out of place in this world because of my age and having young children in my care. It can be lonely. Yet, I love them so much and they have blossomed in more ways than I can ever put down on paper. I have seen them change and evolve and become very happy kids! I would do anything for them. Is there anyone else in my situation?
