FMLA - definition of parent, does grandparents who raise employee comply with law?

I have an employee who is requesting FMLA leave for her grandfather who is terminal. This person was raised by this grandparent since 13 years of age.  Would we be able to offer FMLA to this employee?  The language I have found for both FMLA and CFRA, as we are located in CA, is limited to parents.

Does anyone have more clarification?  Thanks so much,
