looking for advice

hi ladies, i have  been a cafe mom member for a while now but never posted. I have a 3 1/2 year old son who of course is the world to me. In March of this year his father moved out of state they have not seen eachother since. I make every effort to make sure they are keeping in contact but his dad does not. recently my son has been saying to me "mommy, i want my daddy back". It breaks my heart. I dont know what to say. They talk much on the phone because a- i am getting tired of having to be the one to call all the time. he should be calling his son and b- my son doesnt want to talk on the phone. i know its not the same as seeing eachother and a little hard for a 3 yr old to understans. i just dont knwo what say to him and i think some of his behavior issues could be because of this. he is for the most part a well behaved kid and i think his behavior is pretty typical for a 3 yr old. my other concern is that if he is around another male figure for extended periods of time he starts to call him daddy. im not dating anyone and if i happen to land a night out my son never meets them so there are not random men in his life. i apologize for the babbling i am just so heartbroken for him mostly and not sure what to do. he has had positive male figures in his life...unfortunatly its not on a regular basis. this is just out of my control at this point. any advice anyone has would be appreciated. Thanks!
