This absolutely beautiful story appeared in Take a Break this week. Featuring grandmother Monica, who has been looking after her granddaughter Alexandra for 40 years, since the tragic and untimely death of her daughter, Cookie. Alexandra has Down’s syndrome and Monica has been her biggest champion through the decades.
They are grandmother and granddaughter, friends, companions, thick as thieves. It’s not often we get to write stories that span such a long time but it was one that had us hooked. Isn’t Alexandra beautiful? She comes from a huge family and she is the beating heart at the centre of all their lives.
