face it many of have already made that choice with hte job crashes and cut backs and the goveremnt that only cares about corperations

Best Answer

That is a personal decision. You phrased it as a choice, so I will ignore the issues of your age, health, or finances. If you will resent the child and there are other options, no. If it is the best thing for the child, yes.<br />
<br />
If my grandchildren need me to raise them, I would consider it a moral obligation. Because of health and financial issues, it would be hard for me to do it, but I would sacrifice anything I needed to, because I love them and they need the best chance at a good upbringing that I could give them.<br />
<br />
If the grandparents on the other side of the family or a sibling was willing to take them in, and could provide better for them, I would support that. <br />
<br />
Your profile says you are a late fifties female. The only qualifier I will throw in is, that if the grandchild is in their teens and has a history of drugs or violence, I would think very long and hard about if I wanted to take on the financial and physical risks. Whether I would take them in would depend greatly on my understanding of the child's personality and their reasons for their abusive behavior.<br />
<br />
Good luck.
