The role of being a grandparent is quite possibly one of the best adventures of life! Maybe you’ve longed to be a grandparent and now the time has finally come, or you might already be deep in the trenches. Wherever you are in your journey, it’s always a good idea to step back and explore yourself as a grandparent.
