“Other women and their children started calling me ‘Grandma’, which made me happy and proud. I would love to sit in the TV room, surrounded by children who also gave love back to me. I was able to fulfill my wish to be part of a family, no longer isolated, as my only contact with family was sporadic calls.”

– Former Redwood Resident
