SUSAN HOFFMAN: GRAND DISTANCE
Susan Hoffman became an advocate and activist for disenfranchised grandparents after she was faced with a stay-away letter from her grandson’s parents following a stepparent adoption.  She recounts her experiences in her latest book, “Grand Distance,” which she discusses on this episode of Big Blend Radio.

A grandparent’s job is to love the grandchild. A grandchild’s job is to receive that love. With such a unique relationship between generations, it’s the mutual affection and time shared between a grandparent and grandchild that strengthens the bond and makes for a full human being. What happens when the balance of this relationship is interrupted? It’s a losing situation for everyone involved, and while children have no voice and no choice, it’s the grandparents who do. Faced with a stay away letter from the parents, an act protected by California law, Susan Hoffman sought an alternative course of action to share in her grandson’s life, leading her to becoming an “undercover grandma” of sorts. Susan then successfully took on the challenge to change that California law, building a nationwide support system for other disenfranchised grandparents along the way.

Susan is also the author of “Grand Wishes,” “A Precious Bond,” “It Won’t Happen Again” and “Do You Want to Be Right or Do You Want to Be Happy.” She is the creator and director of Advocates for Grandparent-Grandchild Connection, a charitable non-profit 501C (3) organization.
