My GR-son will have a B'Day Sept 15, and he'll be 9. They are getting harder as he gets older without his Mother, he says he sees all the other kids with Mommies and he is with his Dad. I try to be a Mother figure as much as I can, some days we just cry together. He told me one night," Gr-Mom if you die it will like losing my Mommy all over again." I seem to hurt more for him than myself as he gets older, for what he is missing and going to miss. I don't know when the hurt will stop. Never I guess!!

What a hard time for both of you. He will probably always miss his mom, but it sounds like you are doing all you can. Try to find something special to do for his birthday that really fits his interests (air & space museum, zoo, laser tag, etc) and keep your head up, you're doing a great job!
