Becoming A Grown-up Child

January 2019
Updated March 2019

One day in April 2007 my husband and I were the adult kids in our families — we are the only adult children — and the next day we became what we laughingly call “real grown-ups,” helping first one, then two, and for a while all of our parents. It’s time to give back, and we do so willingly and happily. However the process is not easy, and it is not free from anxiety and tension. Check out the As Our Parents Age About page to learn more about the mission of this blog.

2019 Update

My husbands parents have both passed away one in 2000 and the other in 2010. My parents are living with some support, happily to continue to be together after nearly 70 years of marriage.
