New Support Group Opportunity in NC

Our family has been in North Carolina for a year now. Sebellah has started kindergarten and is doing well. 2020 has been a challenging year, as it has been for all of us. Sebellah did get fitted for hearing aids and overall, has done well with them. We love our new home and look forward to 2021 and hopefully being able to further explore our new surroundings. I am hopeful about 2021!

We are excited about a new opportunity that we are exploring. We met last week with representatives from the school district in Mount Airy and some local non-profit organizations and discussed with them about the possibility of partnering with us to start a new Grandparents Raising Grandchildren support group. They are said that they would like to partner with us and appear to be willing to help in any way that they can. We have a follow up meeting on January 4th. We will probably get started with a Zoom type meeting, with the goal of face to face meetings in the fall of 2021.

I have taken time off from writing on this blog but I am planning on restarting regular posts, offering my own experience as a grandparent raising a grandchild, as well as resources as we come across them.

Sharing Life’s Journey!

I have been involved in the field of Human Services for 30 plus years. I teach in the field of Human Services for Purdue University Global. Allene is a stay at home "Lolli", after spending many years in the Healthcare field. We have 3 adult children and in May, 2018, we adopted our granddaughter, who is 6 years-old. We have had her since she was 5 months old. At the end of 2019, we moved to Mount Airy, North Carolina, as a part of a plan to downsize and give Allene the chance to retire, and be at home full-time. We are devoted to making a difference in Sebellah's life and also in the lives of other grandparents raising grandchildren.
