Marty, TIS - Olathe
Two years ago in July (2016) via Facebook and other various social media platforms, I was put into contact with my grandson who I had more or less been isolated from. All communication up until June 2017 had been through the different social media platforms. That June, a phone conversation took place and that is when I found I had a great-grandson.
My wife and I were told about my great-grandson’s birthday party and were welcome to attend. We made the five hour drive and experienced a wide range of emotions. I had never felt so excited and uncomfortable at one time. I felt like all of my prayers had been answered. Not only did I get to meet my grandson for the first time, but I also got to meet my great-grandson for the first time.
Since that first meeting, we have continued to become more involved with each other’s lives. Rarely does a day go by that we do not have some sort of communication whether that be a phone call or a simple text message checking in to see how the other is doing.
