Letter To My Grandson


By the time you read this you will be a big boy.
I know you will be kind, funny, wise, sensitive, interesting, and a ball of fire!
Your parents are all of these things.
I know you will be strong and a wonderful hugger. Your father was and still is.
I wish you happy, happy, days! You will have some bad days, yes.
They are important so you can appreciate the good ones.
There will be disappointments; I know you will be able to handle them.
Granny always says, "Life is 10% of what happens and 90% how you handle it.
I pray you learn about humility.
Please always let an outsider feel inside, and always, always, be kind.
I hope you learn that honesty is the best policy, and that doing hard days
work will always make you feel better.
Be a loyal friend, one people can count on and trust.
I hope you put all of these wonderful things you possess to make yourself and the world around you a better place to live in.
Please learn about the "God Stuff", it really works, trust me.
You have such a wonderful mother. She will be the one to teach you all the good things in life. Remember how to play, for you are in for a loving time.
I hope we will be close always.
I can't wait to see you. I love you already.

Granny

My grandson was stolen too. by CPS in California. What a reason to take him away from the whole family. He was never abused or neglected. He was 6 years old now he is 18. I've been looking for him all this time I love my baby with all my heart. I pray for him every night since they took him away. Every birthday and holidays I cry.
I love you my Anthony, forever your nana. Rosa. I hope to see you soon. God bless you.

My two grandchildren, ages 2 and 4 months live in Australia. It is very difficult for me to not be able to see or interact with my grandchildren on a daily basis. I have had the pleasure of meeting my granddaughter, but I have not been able to meet my grandson. I am constantly told by people that I will never have a close relationship with my grandkids because they live in a different country. That makes me so very sad. I love them both with all my heart and hope that they will know how much their granma loves them.

My 3 grandchildren were stolen by CPS in Michigan. My beautiful granddaughter and two beautiful grandsons, I love them more than anything in this world, one grandson and my granddaughter has been adopted out, my 11 1/2 year old grandson has been in 18 plus foster homes, our wonderful government that has too much power didn't think my daughter could raise them. What a reason to take them away from the whole family!!!! Her children were well taken care of. There really needs to be a class action law suit against CPS everywhere they have too much power and no sense to think that little boy that was never abused or neglected at home is better off with no stability in his life.

I truly am sorry for those grandparents who are not able to have their grandchildren in their life. Your children should be ashamed of themselves. They are keeping their children from a love God intended for them. I never thought I could love anyone besides my child with the same intensity, but BAM! It hit me with their birth the same way their Father's arrival had. If they read this or anyone else who is keeping their child(ren) from their grandparents out of spite, this is not about you. This is about someone you claim (or should) to love more than anything. They need someone to sneak them cookies before dinner, and slip them a few coins for their piggy bank. They'll recall who great uncle Cole was and how he was a hero during the war, or know about the goofy great aunt who danced naked in the rain. Most of all, they will remember forever that they and their (Mom or Dad) were loved and wanted very much when they came into this life.

I was in my Grandson Logan's life till he turned 9 months old at which time his Mother and my son stopped letting me see him which is around the time I stopped paying their rent. 4 years gone by and they have since had another little boy that I have never met. Every so often I get an email from my daughter in law would set a park date to see them only to cancel. I believe she never had intention to keep the park date rather give me false hope and crush it. I never got to hear their first words and what has been stripped from me can never be replaced. I don't wish ill on my daughter in law or son but I do believe they will reap what they have sowed. To use the children as an emotional tool is sad and the boys had no choice in this horrible deed.

To my grandson who I miss with all my soul,

When you were born I took care of you. When you were just two years old, we went fishing, camping, and walking in the mountains. As years past I kept missing you. Many in my family have left the earth, yet they watch over you from above, as if trying to keep up with you as if you were a celebrity. But it seems that you don't remember them. I love you as my own, but as the years have past I feel like you have left my life. Every night I pray that god will take care of you. Remember, your Mame is always here, loving and missing you.

The day I have been waiting for to csee my little grandson and that's the day when he came into this world on 3.12.2012. Just looking at his cute tiny face made me cry with joy and I say to myself, wow I'm a grandmother to this little prince. Took good care of him and his needs until he turned 4 months. One day my son came to me and said mom I'm shifting out and that was the day I knew I got to let my grandson go with them. Now my grandson is 6 months and a week twice my son will bring my grandson to see me , but I still miss my little prince how I wish they didn't move out. I miss his every single move and his smile. I love you my little prince and you will always be in my heart .

On November 1, 2009 the state of AZ stole my precious Grandson, Jayden Daniel Guzman 3 yrs old at the time. He is now 6 yrs old and there is never one minute that goes by that I do not think about him or something that reminds me of him. I want you to know JayJay that Nana loves and misses you more than life it self. Your family will be waiting for you to find us as we will continue to keep our eyes ears and life open for you until the day we can hold one another with all the love and strength that's waiting for you. I also wonder if you are being taken care of , and loved the way we love and care about you. I cry everyday missing and loving you. until the moment we meet again I will never let you go you are loved and missed dearly. Thank you as well to the family that has adopted you, I pray that the lord will watch over you yesterday, today and until we meet again. I LOVE YOU JAYJAY..ALL MY LOVE ALWAYS AND FOREVER YOUR NANA OLLAR

This is to my grandson DaShon who will be 15 on Sept 29. He was put up for adoption. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you or wonder if you remember me. You were 5 the last time I saw you. I cry every day just wondering if your loved and taken care of like you deserve. I pray you are, and I pray that you will find us one day, always believe you were and will always be loved by me and all your other family here. Remember I will be looking at the stars every night when they're looking at you.

I would love to see my granddaughters in California, but since their father (my son) died 7 years ago I have not been able to because of I guess bad blood between some family members. I have tried to communicate with them via email Facebook, Phone calls, text but very little come of it. The oldest is 18 now and the youngest is 15, and I know they are old enough to get in touch with me if they want to because I certainly want to see and hug them and let them know how much they mean to me. I stopped communicating with them because I felt as though I was being a pest. I love you Kela and Jorden very much and maybe one day soon you will come see me in Texas.

The last time when I saw my grandson was when he was 5 years old and I parked out side of his school. I have not seen him he is now 19 year of age. I pray that some day he will come to see me. And he will be a big boy maybe even a married and a father with kids of his own. So whereever my grandson is I LOVE YOU, a day does not go by that I think of you
