On May 28, The Second Chance Grandparents Group of Family Focus in collaboration with Northlight Theatre presented a performance of their writings called “That’s Your Story” at Family Focus. The performance was a moving series of memoir vignettes written by these grandparents in their long-term support group facilitated by JoAnn Avery and Beth Jacobs.  

Chicago director Kaiser Ahmed adapted the vignettes to narrated stage clips and the fast-moving compilation showed both the struggles and joys of helping to raise children in multi-generational families.
