i can empathise. Its just myself, my husband and DD for xmas. It is lonely and I wish we had family to visit or come over. My DD is 5yrs old and to her its all about the presents at this stage. I hope when we get to our forever location, where we want to buy a home i may be able to have an adopted grandparent or two to share our xmas days and other special days with.
Have you heard about adopt a grandparent? Its in its infancy, but they can give you a package to hand out to try to attract potential grandparents in your area.
It hasn't been successful in our area but hopefully when we get to our forever home then I will try again.
