On Becoming A Grandfather Without Having Been A Father

Renee_Dan-560x371Dan was single, living in a high-rise condo with no children and no pets when he married Renee, a divorced mother of three grown children. A year after their marriage, a grandchild arrived, followed by another and one more is on the way.

Now they live in Renee’s house and have little visitors, Jonah and Simon. It has been a transition, involving patience and kindness plus a bit of alone time for Dan. That his screen saver has their photos on it and his new sailboat has been named JoSimon tells it all.

See Renee’s article in the BoomerCafe:
