  1. Hi Barbara,
    I’m so glad you reached out. You are not alone. There are millions of Grandparents who find themselves raising babies. You are right. Babies are exhausting. You are also grieving the loss of your own daughter, which is extremely hard. Have you found any support services? A group perhaps? Parenting can be a lonely and isolating experience when at a more traditional age, I can imagine it is more so when it’s unexpected. Let us know how you are feeling. Glad you felt safe reaching out to us.
