This article kind of made me cry

Some articles cut deep. This one cut deeper for me than perhaps even for than for the lady who wrote about raising children away from the support of extended family. You see… 

Our parents all live less than 10 minutes drive away.  For the 2.years since Miss Bee joined us she’s never been looked after by them. Not even for 5 minutes.  

Apparently they’re “too old”. The hard part is seeing them do other things which seem rather energetic and knowing how actively they sought time with our other older children.  

It’s bitterly sad feeling like she’ll essentially grow up not knowing that same love and not even know what she missed out on.
