Surrounded With Love: Grandparents Raising Grandchildren

More than 3.5 million children in the US are raised by a grandparent. In their own words, three grandmothers explain the reasons for their care giving/parenting decisions, and share their rewarding experiences raising their grandchildren.

  • Dolores, a 48-year old married woman is raising three grandsons after herdaughter was murdered.
  • Aderian, a 65-year old grandmother is raising two grandchildren, ages 12 and 6 after mental illness incapacitated both of their parents.
  • Jewel, a 64-year old grandmother, is ‘happily raising’ three grandchildren, ages 18, 13, and 4.

Surrounded With Love explores both the positive and negative feelings of the parenting grandparent: the hard work, the challenges and the added responsibilities.
