You have dreams about being a grandparent, surrounded by loving grandchildren, but your children don’t want children of their own. What would you do if being a grandparent was all you ever wanted to be?
Being a grandparent is a privilege and having kids is no guarantee that they will want or have kids themselves. It’s best not to expect other people to fulfill your dreams. Find different ways to meet your need to nurture children. For example, “Adopt a Grandparent” programs match older people with young families precisely for this purpose. You can also volunteer at local parent and baby groups or look at your neighbourhood and see what other opportunities there are. It’s not realistic to long for something not within your power to achieve.
Maybe if you go to a church, you would enjoy volunteering in the nursery or helping with the children’s group. You can also volunteer at a daycare; they would love your help! They don’t have to be your grandchildren to enjoy them.
