Grandma Bo's Law
Any grandparent should sign this petition if they are denied visitation with their grandchild (children) for ANY reason, but especially when they are denied as a result of family bickering and vindictiveness on the part of the child's angry parents.
Grandparents play a vital role in the lives of their grandchildren. They help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance that older people can offer. Some grandparents are the only stabilizing, loving factor in their grands' lives and stand in as caregivers and guardians when the parents not in the lives of their children for whatever reasons. In the world today, there are many grandparents who HAVE to step in and save their grandchildren when parents become incarcerated, drugusers, negligent, or even die. But at any given time, a parent can decide out of anger to keep a child away from the grandparent, and the child who has been exposed to love and care becomes a weapon used to hurt the very one who cared for him. In Alabama, grandparents have no legal rights or visitation and Congress is urged to step in a make right laws that allow loving, caring grandparents to share in the lives of their grandkids. I am a victim of vindictive behavior on the part of my grandchild's parents and I am asking Congress to begin with me to acquire visitation for Grandparents whose hearts are breaking as mine is for a grandchild that I practically raised for four yrs of his five years of life. He lived with me more than he has lived with his own parents. but now they have become angry and have snatched him out out my life. This I am sure he does not understand at his age and is wondering where is his Grandma Bo all of a sudden.
