Connect with a surrogate grandparent

Do you live without the support of older relatives and would like to adopt a grandparent to share your laughs and happy moments? Find a Grandparent gives young families the chance to meet a surrogate grandparent.

The surrogate grandparents who you find on this site would like to meet with a family on a regular basis. They don't do any babysitting but want to establish a long lasting relationship with your whole family. This relationship is intended to be a two-way street that benefits all involved.

We currently have 31 surrogate grandparents that are active and visible on our website.

New experiences for your children

Children will have exciting new experiences with their new granny or pop. A surrogate grandparent can be a positive role model in a child's life.

Children will learn to appreciate the older generation and hear their stories and memories. Having a surrogate grandparent is special for kids, who otherwise live with very little opportunities to build relationships or interact with older people.

Surrogate grandparents will be happy to celebrate important milestones with the family. Imagine how nice it will be for your children when the surrogate grandparent comes along to school on Grandparents Day and when you can celebrate special occasions together.

Having a lot of life experience, the surrogate grandparent can have a calming influence on the family's life.

I wanted to let you know that I have found the most
family who are now part of my life.
