In her story, Becoming Grandmother . . . Again, Charlotte Snead makes us feel just how magical it is to become a grandmother. Sometimes you see the tiny replica of your children, sometimes a mixture of both their parents, and occasionally a special child comes along. Adopting a child from another nation brings unique challenges, including differences in physical appearance and language. The Snead family welcomed this bright-eyed Korean boy, and once he arrived, he danced his way into their hearts and all concerns melted away.
Grandmother to five boys, Charlotte Snead and her husband have made their twenty acre home-site in rural West Virginia “Almost Heaven” for little boys, complete with swimming pool, tree house and a magical train layout. Charlotte’s husband, an orthopedic surgeon who keeps failing retirement at age 73 has cut back his work schedule to three days a week so that together they can visit those precious boys, ranging in age from 19 years to a few months.
Charlotte published her first book, His Brother’s Wife, in October, 2012 and A Place to Live in September, 2016 with Jan Carol Publishing. She is contracted for four more books in a “The Hope House Girls” series , stories about five girls who share a season in a maternity home and become friends for life. Charlotte draws from her experiences as a pro-life leader and a mentor mom for Mothers of Preschoolers to write inspirational fiction placing romance in marriage, where it was meant to flourish.
