Dear Adoptive Grandparent,
My name is Jill Bryant, and I am contributing faculty at Walden University. I am conducting interviews as part of a research study investigating the transitional experience of grandparents who formally adopt one or more grandchildren. Adoption must have occurred two years ago or longer to allow adequate time to reflect on the transition. Interviews will take approximately 60 minutes and are informal and conversational. All responses are kept confidential with no personal identifying information. Participants will be given a 25.00 Amazon gift card in appreciation of your time.
Your participation will be invaluable to this research because while many have studied grandparents helping to raise their grandchildren, almost no research exists for those who formally adopt their grandchild. If you would be interested in learning more about the possibility of participating in my study, please email me at email@example.com.
