My husband and I have entered the new world of grandparenting. We loved being on hand for the first month of our little Harvey's life. Now that we are home, we are valuing every snippet of his life that we get to share. I am very aware of how lucky we are to have the ability to communicate in real time. Both of my great grandmothers left Europe to make a life here in the U.S. Their parents heard little if any more from them. How painful that must have been. My daughter and her family live in England. We get texts, pictures, emails and best of all, Skype. They will visit here and we will visit there. I expect that Harvey is part of a world traveling generation of grandchildren who will know their relatives this way. We'll have to see how this all unfolds. In the meantime, I'm taking delight where it's offered.
