First Time Grandparent - Separated - Brittany - UK13 Replies
My first grandchild will be born in the UK soon and I'm living in Brittany. My partner does not want to return to live in the UK but I don't want to be separated from my grandchild, I want to be a part of his/her life as we only have one chance to see him/her growing up. Living here in Brittany can be a wonderful way of life for some in comparison to living in the UK but then, there is nothing more valuable to me than being with family and sharing time that you can never get back once the years have gone by. In an age of social media I know it is easy to keep in touch and this is a lifeline for a lot of us. My parents played a big part in our childeren's lives and so did my grandparents in mine, I would not swap those memories for the world. If you were blessed with a first grandchild whilst living in France/Brittany, I would welcome any comments on how this worked out for you. How do I find a middle ground on what my partner wants/needs and what I want and need in my life. Any private messages will be tated with confidence. Thank you. How did this work out for you when this wonderful event took place?
