We thought it would be nice to hear from someone else for a change and the lovely Jane from Westbury GGCC has sent us a story for the blog! Take it away Jane...
"Where to begin, I have a granddaughter who is now 11yrs who I haven't had any contact with since 2007 due to family breakdown, equally my son, her dad, has also not had any contact. As was illustrated last night when we go through these dark times in our lives it is so easy to let the darkness take over, and desperation become all encompassing.
I made a decision to swim not sink and set up a support group for grandparents who are denied contact.
A lot of my time is taken up with grieving grandparents, and suicidal grandparents, I can talk to them through those really bad moments and hopefully between us we pull each other through.
But just sometimes I selfishly wonder who is supporting me?
Finding GGCC, has been my support and thank you so much.
When I am 'singing' I think of Liandra, my granddaughter, and its my way of shouting out from the rooftops how much I miss her and love her."
What an encouraging story and truly an honour to be able, along with the rest of GGCC to support such a lovely lady.
