Grandparents raising grandchildren, conference set for outreach
Artie Dotson now lives in Live Oak Village in Aransas Pass. At age 86, she remains active in both Aransas Pass and Ingleside communities. Speaking her mind she said she believes grandparents are often more capable of raising grandchildren. Her reason is the belief that grandparents will be more likely to put the child’s needs above work or social activities. Dotson was 39-years-old with two teenage sons when her two day old granddaughter entered her life. The child’s father was her oldest son who worked offshore with only five days home on a three week rotation.
