Neither my sister or I plan on ever having children and my mom definitely wanted grandkids so she was bothered by that for awhile. Then a nice couple from her church had a baby and basically adopted my mom as a grandma because the kid's bio grandparents all live far away.
Anyway my mom texted me a v-day card featuring her grandkid and I'm just really happy she's been able to embrace a found family thing and still have kids without needing us on the same page. It's sweet.
