The loss of grandparents

Grandparents have been highlighted as a result of the most terrible circumstances this country has ever seen.

Far too many loving and caring grandparents all taken too soon, by this horrible disease.

Our hearts go out to each and every family who are going through their own personal loss.

It seems that every time I put on the TV or the radio someone is talking about grandparents, even the first question from a member of the public at todays press conference from Downing Street was about grandchildren. The questioner asked how long would it be before she could hug her precious grandchildren?

The health minister, the chief medical officer and head of public health England, acknowledged how hard it was to be prevented form seeing those grandparents and grandchildren.

Of course we all know only too well how hard it is, but of course members of BGSG know that they have no end date to look forward to, many have been estranged/alienated for many years,

It is very difficult to find the silver linings of Coronavirus.

I sincerely hope that all grandparents and all ministers will now have far more compassion and empathy for the millions of grandchildren who are prevented from having a loving and caring relationship due to family breakdown.

The rights of grandchildren must be heard and taken notice of.

Grandchildren’s Rights – One voice, united, breaking the silence.
