“Attending the GrandRally is not only about sharing and advocacy but about making new friends, having fun, and bonding with those who share a common way of life. It is a great experience from beginning to end. It’s our CELEBRATION!”

Opal, Grandparent

“I thought I was alone…first I found other Grandfamilies in Minnesota, then I found more in other states through an email group, next came the 1st GrandRally and I could put faces to the names. I met Relative Caregivers but I also met the people from the organizations that continue to support us…I am no longer alone.”

Sharon, Grandparent
