My best friends have grandkids and I have none. It seems that the desperation I had becoming a grandmother flew them away. I always have loved children and since very young I took care of some of my cousins which now they even have grandkids. My sister has three wonderful grandkids, which grew in a wink of an eye.
My dear husband has one of the most beautiful, happy and healthy grandkids I have seen. I wish them blessings from our Lord to protect them always where ever they are.
I do not have grandkids of my own, but I could be a grandmother for all the kids in the world, since it is about who they are for me. The Bible is my guidance and it says that: "there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven." (Ecclesiastes 3:1), and it also says that "we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
This hub is written from meditating on some happenings around the world about how kids are raised; and made me realize that I am not late to orientate my kids and others, about children's care. Though people are different one from each other we are similar in many ways. There is a main fact that allows us to follow some steps in the way humans develop.
Below I share the greatness of watching and being involved in the development of a child and videos I found great to help them and enjoy each day with love.

Love from the beginning
By 8 to 12 months

Love in the present

Love children at all times!
Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him. (Psalm 127:3) They learn what others are saying and doing even before birth.Perhaps they do not understand words but they sure do feel emotions such as:
I invite you to be responsible for our children...our children from all around the earth.
Blessings to all!
