A legacy goes far beyond the legal documents that bequeath savings, belongings, hand-knit sweaters, and embroidered white christening gowns or smocked dresses passed generation to generation. It includes a DNA chain of inherited traits. Hopefully it will be a vibration of love and service, but unfortunately, for some, it involves a cycle of mental health issues, addictions, and violence. That cycle can be broken, however, if we, with the leadership of GRAND Magazine, build a community of support for entire families to work together to transcend invisibility, heal, and start leaving a legacy of love now.
Invisible/alienated/estranged grandparents need a voice, and here we hope to offer each other balms, education, resources, and actionable steps you can take. Please join me in this confidential, moderated site, where you can share your journey, with me, and others. I will then share the common threads and my insights into them in monthly posts and columns in GRAND Magazine.
