Richmond LDS Woman's Trials Take Great Sacrifice But Earn Great Rewards

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA -- An LDS woman has found that taking care of her grandchildren after her daughter abandoned them takes both great sacrifice and yields great rewards. Sandra (not her real name) leaped into parenting again when her daughter left, both working and running the household, until heart problems caused by stress forced her to stop working.

Now she has a job at less than half her previous salary and gets a Temporary Assistance for Needy Families grant to make up a small part of the difference. LDS missionaries help out by doing yard chores and providing assistance. But she says that the grandchildren make the sacrifices worth it, "Yes, I had a choice about raising these grandchildren. But let's be real: They make it worthwhile. They know they're safe and loved and say so."
