Grand Photo of the Week: Wedding Gift

By January 23, 2013

Stepgrandchildren can be a special bonus for an older bride or groom.

Some older brides and grooms receive special wedding gifts: stepgrandchildren. Many quickly drop the "step" prefix and consider themselves Grampy or Nana or whatever grandparent name they prefer. Blended families still present challenges, just as they do for younger couples, but many older brides and grooms consider the grandchildren the best of all gifts received on their wedding day.

Being Amara’s grandfather is the greatest gift I’ve ever received, or ever could hope to receive. Initially I was “Him”, briefly I was “Honey” because she heard her Grandma call me that, but now I’m Grampy, and that’s just the best.
