Due to the fact that my daughter is a Heroin addict who recently signed away her rights to my 3 grandchildren to non-related foster parents; I have lost all rights to ever see them again. I spent the greater part of 8 years with my oldest grandson & now I'm just expected to endure the pain & suffering of never seeing him again, never getting to hear his voice over the phone, no contact at all. And what about his feelings toward me, the love in his heart for me & my family members? I am his only living biological grandparent. My youngest grandson knows me & misses me as I do him. My only grand daughter barely knows me. I've made countless trips back/forth to MO to visit them & was led to believe by the foster mom that I would always be welcome. The adoption was final on the 21st of June, she changed her phone number & I've been informed I'm not allowed to see them again. THIS IS JUST WRONG!!!

To:
Change the rules against grandparents rights!!!

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I have, unfortunately, suffered a similar thing in my life with my oldest Grand Daughter. I just hope and pray that she knows I love her and that Grandma is here for her when she can get away from her controlling Father and that Grandma is working towards some relief for her as soon as possible!

      I'm a grandmother. It could happen to anybody.

      I'm a grandmother too and feel that grandparents should retain rights to see their grandchildren in cases like this. Foster parents who adopt should not be allowed to cut those children off from the family members who did nothing wrong and have been very supportive of them. These children will have emotional problems that may grow into deeper issues as they become older and discover they have loving relatives who have been denied visitation.
