Well, the story goes like this. My grandson was taken into foster care because of something his parents did. Anyway, at that time I went to court and told them that he has grandparents that would take care of him. Well when DCF (Dept of Children & Families) dropped him off at my house he was only 1 yrs old. This poor baby cried all day long and wanted to be held ALL day long. He had to be walked/rocked to sleep. He would wake up crying, etc. Very long day, very stressful and very painful when you have fibro. So I had no choice but to give him back to DCF. Now that he's almost 3 my husband and I want him to live with us. He's at a very happy age, I don't have to hold him all day long. He doesn't cry anymore, etc. My problem, DCF is saying with Fibro that I can't take care of him properly. Thats pure bullshit! I have him every weekend and my husband and I have no problems at all. Sure I get tired and have lots of pain but I'd still have that regardless. I told them I'm able to do it now because I don't have to hold him and rock him from morning till night (and thats not an exaggeration by the way). Does anyone know what I can do, who I can talk to? I want him to be with his family and he's happy when he's with us. I'm getting worried that they won't give him back. Don't I have any kind of grandparents rights? Any advice would help. Thanks.........Shelly

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
