“The memories of this time will be in our hearts forever. My grandchildren were happy and safe and were just like the other kids at the beach having fun and I had a beautiful rest and time to read and have long soul searching walks on the glorious Queenscliff beach. I finally felt revived and energetic enough to go home and keep being the best grandma and family I can be to these special three children who are now the love of my life. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for making this possible. You have helped change our lives.”
