My husband and I have always been involved in both of our precious grandchildren’s lives. We want to see and hold them again before we die.
Our grandson is 13 years old. He has violent seizures. His mother will not tell us how he is doing. We are so worried about him. We love him so very much. Our granddaughter is 9 years old. We miss her little smile and big hugs. She is a beautiful sweet child. We love her dearly. Our grandchildren love and miss us. They must wonder why we don’t see them anymore. They spent most days of every week, and overnight stays on the weekends at our house. We are very close to them.
The time is well overdue for Washington to restore the grandparent and grandchild visitation law. Grandparents like us have earned the right to petition our courts for visitation. It is time to stop the unwarranted alienation. We want our voices to be heard and counted. Please write to our representatives and senators explaining your family’s situation.
Washington is the only state in the entire union that is failing to have this law in effect. Please call 509-378-0027 for information on signing LI-877, Children Need Grandparents.
Mrs. Dottie Lassiter, West Richland
