This plan requires lots of faith and patience over many decades. Below is a draft of a letter that I would write if I had made such a gift to a granddaughter named Megan. Readers who want more details about this lifetime plan will find them at this page on my web site. Dear Megan, As you know very well by now, nothing is dearer to my heart than my hopes for your long-term future and happiness.
Your birthday is near the beginning of a new year at school, just like mine. This involved travelling by myself on a tram or a bus for half an hour or more. Back then it was an adventure that I relished. I could make the pattern of the old Forth bridge in wool.
I used to get on the bus before him and save him a seat. No one thought this was odd or dangerous. He met my parents. No harm ever came to me, only delight. It was interesting being at the big school, which had horrible smells from the chemistry lab, and a big playground where we skipped with some expertise.
My best friend was Patricia and for some reason she was not popular. I was fearless — far more than I am now. Oh, and I have reports from that time that tell me my spelling was excellent.
Never send a card or a letter or an email. Your parents stopped contact and I wish I knew why. I think that in not being allowed a connection with me, we both lose out. I would love to sit with you and share some of my memories. Even more, I would wish to be able to hear about your life, your times at school, your friends and adventures.
I would love to laugh with you and dry your tears.
We could play treading only on the fallen leaves and see how far we could get. I wonder what interests you. Do you read books? Have you started to learn a musical instrument? I have sent you my photograph.
I like to hope so. One day you will be even more than seven and then you will be old enough to find your own way to see me. Will you do that? I think that if you have any curiosity you will, and then we can both catch up on all those shared times we are missing now.

God bless you now and . By reaching out to a troubled granddaughter through letter writing, you can let her know you understand and accept her and that you'll always be there for her. You might also find yourself in a position to offer advice and help her solve some of her problems.
