Hi all, my wonderful mom is so so excited about us adopting. She wants to know everything she possibly can.
Are there any support groups for potential adoptive grandparents? So she can discuss things with other people.
I'd thought of getting her set up on gransnet? Don't want her on here because of me posting on such threads as "if you could sleep with one other man ego would it be?" Etc etc

Our local authority runs a 'friends and family' type of course for grandparents, and well anyone who's involved with the family.. My patents are booked onto this in October.

It might help them and also for them to make friends with other people in similar situations

I bought my Mum this book which was really helpful.

Good luck

I bought that book... One word of warning. In it, it apparently advocates Grandparents being involved in intros....

My parents got very upset when I told them they wouldn't be... And manly meet our DD/DS for sometime until after they came home.
