Happy Grandparents Day!!

Ruby Mae is a great-grandparent that is raising her 3 great-grandchildern.

ACCA is celebrating Grandparents Day all week by featuring some of our inspiring Grandparents Raising Grandchildren participants on our Facebook Page. Below are some of the quotes from our wonderful grandparents and relative caregivers that will be featured this week.

“The beautiful gift of love that I see and feel when I see their smiling little faces.”

“Enjoy them while you can. Enjoy watching them try new things. Listen to them and help when you can.”

“Whatever our grandchildren are going through in life;  we need to let them know that we will be there for them. The door is always open and we want them to get on the right track. We need to teach them to seek God’s kingdom first.”

“I enjoy receiving the love that they give to me, seeing how they come to me for help in any situation, and teaching them to be obedient and have respect for themselves and other adults.”
