2016 Orange County GRANDparents of the Year

JACK AND GAIL ADAMS

Jack and Gail have four young grandchildren ranging in age from three to 13. When their oldest two grandsons were in need of a place to stay, they moved them in for nearly two years. Grandma and grandpa became second parents to them, making sure that homework was done and order was maintained in their lives.

grandparentsWhen their four-year-old grandson needed a ride to preschool two days a week as his parents worked, grandpa quickly volunteered and installed a car seat in his truck. They never hesitate to babysit or to tutor the kids whenever asked.

Whether Jake (13) needs help with Algebra 1 or Haley (3) needs help with her ABCs, grandma and pawpaw work with them tirelessly until they understand it perfectly.

Every single Saturday and many weeknights are spent at the kids’ games. Through health problems and medical concerns, grandma and pawpaw remain constant loving figures in their grandkids’ lives. The grandchildren would truly not be the same without them!

The Orange County Week of the Family theme for 2016  FAMILY: A Team Effort!

The goal of Week of the Family is to help build strong families. When you compare strong families to strong teams, the following similarities appear:

  • Just like individual players on a team, family members have their own unique skills, personalities, and positions/roles.
  • Strong families and teams both work together towards a common goal.
  • You can’t play team sports successfully as an individual. We need our families to help us through good and bad times.
  • Just as teams learn from practices and games, families learn as they help each other through life and give opportunities to learn and grow.

During Week of the Family, Orange County residents found activities and opportunities to spend time together and build stronger teams. This year, they partnered with JustServe.org to help families find service opportunities.

A special thank you goes to all of our sponsors!
