Ds is 17. GF will be 17 in a month (actually a month from tomorrow). They have known each other since they were 4 years old. Have been best friends since then too. They dated back when they were freshmen. Now they are seniors. GF's dad may be getting a job in another state. Which means after graduation the family will be moving. GF's younger sister asked how DS was taking it. GF said every time she mentions it DS shuts down & doesn't want to talk about it (sounds like me!). GF's dad will be moving right away if he gets the job. GF's mom (who is our church's youth leader) has invited DS to go along with them to visit throughout the school year (which I am totally fine with).
I know this is going to be hard on both of them. And I know they will keep in touch. I just want to be prepared on how to help him cope if it does happen.
