Different Dream’s Special Needs Grandparenting Series Begins
A couple months back, Different Dream conducted a survey for grandparents of kids with special needs. They were asked what types of special needs grandparenting posts they would like to see. They said they would like to see…
- More inspirational and encouraging posts
- More how to posts
- More personal stories from other grandparents
- More posts that offer spiritual support
…in that order.
