Some of us will be fortunate enough to see the results of intentional grandparenting in the lives of our older grands. Meet Zach Samalonis, a twentysomething who cared for and grew from his grandparents' struggles and influences. Stan Samalonis and Zach, age 8, grace the cover art for this episode.
Zach's personal story is highlighted on his portfolio web site, https://www.zachsamdesigns.com/.
We met Zach through this article about his aviation camp experiences written by his mom for the website NextAvenue.
To hear more from us on this theme, check out our earlier episode, "Do Grandparents Matter?" (It's one of Mike's all-time favorites.)
