When a mother cares more for herself and her choice of lifestyle than for the welfare of her child, it is time for someone to intervene. The author of this book was in that situation. Sadie Olivia Meadows’ daughter was a habitual liar and drug addict. Meadow’s had no other recourse but to remove her grandson from the situation. There is a sharp increase of grandparents raising their grandchildren. I believe we all know one or more grandparent raising their grandchild. Perhaps we raised a generation of self-centered children. I pray we do better with our grandchildren. My heart goes out to Ms. Meadows. I know this is not the life she had planned for her “golden years.” I admire her tenacity, generous love, and willingness to share with others. This book should be required reading for parents and grandparents.

Walker For more information e-mail homeschoolbookreview@gmail.com Meadows, Sadie Olivia. Grandparents Adopting Their Grandchildren and How It Can Affect Their Relationship with Their Children (published in 2010 by PublishAmerica LLLP, Baltimore, MD). If grandparents find that one of their children, for whatever reason, cannot raise their grandchildren, what can they do? One option is to adopt the grandchildren. More and more grandparents are raising their grandchildren. Is that a good idea? I am aware of situations where grandparents are even homeschooling their grandchildren. Sadie Olivia Meadows, a wife, mother, and grandmother who is the author of several books and short stories, shares the story of her personal struggle to get her daughter to stop doing drugs and be a mother to her son. After talking about her own upbringing, the death of her father at age 38, her failed first marriage, and her problems with her youngest daughter Ellie, Meadows chronicles over nine years how Ellie met a man named Edward in the military, became pregnant, married Edward, then falsely claimed that he was abusing her, and after her son Alex was born left her husband to live with a several different men, and began doing drugs. Meadows and her second husband Phillip became Alex’s primary care givers and finally convinced Ellie to sign the papers so that they could legally adopt Alex to protect him. After that Ellie would often tell people that her mother had deceived her into giving up her son. The point Meadows is making is, “I would never tell anyone to adopt, or not to adopt, a grandchild. I had no choice where Alex was concerned. I will say to anyone who wishes to adopt a grandchild, or any family member’s child, to expect resentment from the parents if they are still living, and any close family members when they do. They may or may not experience any resentment, but be prepared just in case there is any.” Meadows begins the concluding chapter, “Do I wish that I had never adopted my grandson? Not for a second have I ever wished that. I love Alex with all of my heart, and always will. There’s not a doubt in my mind that Alex would be dead now if Phillip and I hadn’t loved him enough to raise him.” The book could have used a little editing for grammar and paragraphing, but these minor flaws do not take away from the powerful (and relevant) message that the story conveys. I especially like the emphasis on trusting in God and putting Him first in one’s life.
