My "dream" daughter, (she never gets in trouble, great student, active in our church, helpful at home, shares what is going on in her life, asks our advice), has been away at college and was to be coming home for the summer. I was really looking forward to having her back home. (She is my 3rd of 4 kids)
However, she has decided to move directly into an apartment, and totally out of our home. While I am happy for her, I feel so sad for me! I know she needs to be her own person and this is actually a good step, but how do I handle this change of feeling unneeded?
