Grandparents Answer a Call 
祖父母接了一个电话
As a third generation native of Brownsville, Texas, Mildred Garza never pleased move away. 
作为德克萨斯布朗斯维尔的第三代当地人,米尔德丽德加尔萨对搬离自己的故土从来都不感到高兴。
 
Even when her daughter and son asked her to move to San Antonio to help with their children, she politely refused. 
甚至当她的女儿和儿子让她搬到圣安东尼奥市帮忙照看小孩时,她礼貌的拒绝了。
 
Only after a year of friendly discussion did Ms Garza finally say yes. That was four years ago. 
只有在一年的友好协商后,德力德加才最终同意。那是四年前的事了。
 
Today all three generations regard the move to a success, giving them a closer relationship than they would have had in separate cities. 
现在三代人都认为这次搬家是成功的,因为在一个城市生活比在不同的城市生活让他们之间的关系更近了。
 
No statistics show the number of grandparents like Garza who are moving closer to the children and grandchildren. 
没有统计数据告诉我们有多少像德力德加这样的祖父母搬到住的离孩子和孙辈更近。
 
Yet there is evidence suggesting that the trend is growing. 
然而有证据表明这个趋势正在增长。
 
Even President Obama’s mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, has agreed to leave Chicago and into the White House to help care for her granddaughters. 
甚至是奥巴马总统的丈母娘,玛丽安.罗宾逊,同意离开芝加哥搬到白宫去帮忙照料她的孙女们。
 
According to a study grandparents. Com, 83 percent of the people said Mrs. Robinson ‘s decision will influence grandparents in the American family. 
一个研究表明,83%的人们说罗宾逊的决定会影响美国家庭里的祖父母们。
 
Two-thirds believe more families will follow the example of Obama’s family. 
三分之二的人相信越来越多的家庭会效仿奥巴马的家庭。
 
“In the 1960s we were all a little wild and couldn’t get away from home far enough or fast enough to prove we could do it on our own,” says Christine Crosby, publisher of Grand, a magazine for grandparents. 
“在20世纪60年代,我们都有点不安分,希望离开家越远越好,越快越好,以此证明我们可以独立”,Grand(祖父母的杂志)的出版商克里斯丁说。
 
“We now realize how important family is and how important it is to be near them, especially when you’re raising children.”
“我们现在意识到家庭有多么重要和离家人近的重要,尤其是当你正在养育小孩时。”
 
Moving is not for everyone. Almost every grandparent wants to be with his or her grandchildren and is willing to make sacrifices, but sometimes it is wiser to say no and visit frequently instead. 
但搬到离的近不适用于每个人。几乎每个祖父或者祖母都想和他的(她的)孙子孙女在一起,并且也愿意做出牺牲。但是有时候说不会更加的明智,反而可以经常的去探望。
 
Having your grandchildren far away is hard, especially knowing your adult child is struggling, but giving up the life you know may be harder.
孙子孙女们住的远是不容易,尤其了解到自己的成年孩子正在艰难的撑起他们的小家时,可放弃自己熟悉的生活可能更难。
