tenderness through the generations

There is a special bond between a child and his grandparent that is most often glued by a strong tenderness, a powerful love and a kind of friendship that is only possible between these alternate generations. It is as though they are closer to each other being at each end of the circle of life, each yearning and longing to be with the other.

In China this bond is celebrated in almost every family, where the grandparents volunteer to become a very strong presence, care givers and friends to their grandchildren.
