Hi, I am a 24 year old single mother. I have a 4 year old son and his father just passed away on the 22 of June. It was his fault for what happened. He was drunk and driving excessively fast and lost control and hit a tree. He was in ICU for a week. He was brain dead and severed his spine in half, so even if he had survived he wouldn't have been the same. I am not taking this well at all, I am engaged to another person who is the greatest thing to my son and I, but, I'm still having a hard time dealing with this. I am extremely depressed, and I cry ALL the time! My son knows that his father is in heaven and I told him that a puppy ran into the road and that his daddy swirved to miss the dog and hit a mail box. He is so intelligent and he understands what happened to his daddy. I don't know if he is taking just really good cause he understands and also has my fiance in his like too, or, if I am going to be dealing with a major breakdown with him 1 day when he really realizes that daddy is no longer around. He only saw his father 1 day a week as it was so he wasn't in his life on a daily basis nor did he call everyday. I just would like to see how others handled this..
