Technically they are her great grandparents, and step at that. Her step mothers grandparents. But they've been a part of easy child's life since infancy. There are no great grands in that family, easy child was accepted from day 1 and treated as the first grand/great-grand, regardless of the whole "step" factor. My mother is not in our lives, my father neither. easy child's fathers parents are both deceased. As our both my and her fathers grandparents. So all easy child's grands and great grands are via her step mom. They have all been so loving and warm and involved with easy child. It has been such a special experience for her. Her great grand passed Oct. 26, her great gram passed Nov. 4. 10-11 aparts they both pass, which is a story of mystery all in itself. Please if you can, would you send some good thoughts for easy child? She's only 11 and she has never had a close death before. She struggled but was brave about her "Grand-papa", but now with her "Grand-mama" (They are all french) gone as well, it's going to be hard healing for her. She is with her dad and step-mom until Tuesday as the services are tomorrow and Monday. I want so badly to give my sweet girl a big hug. I know she's in good hands with her dad to help her through and its where she should be right now. But as a mom, I want to squeeze her and tell her in person how much I love her and how brave she is and just hear where she is at with all of this .
