Hi. I'm new to this site but I'm happy I joined because I get to communicate with other mommies.
4 months before I gave birth to my precious baby girl, my fiance (her daddy) was killed in a fatal caraccident. I'm having serious troubles with coping. I was in love. I'm not sure if I ever will get over him and my baby girl doesn't have a daddy.
Does anyone have advice with how to cope and how to fill that hole for my daughter?

Have you gone to grief counseling to help you deal with your loss? I suggest you start by getting yourself help either in group counseling or individual counseling. As far as filling a hole for your daughter, you can't. But you can make sure to keep him alive by telling her all about him, putting a keepsake album together for her of pictures of him from birth to the time of his passing. Try to find a positive male role model, possibly your father or other male family members who are willing to spend time with her.

Thank you Amy. I have been to grief counseling. I continue to battle with progression though. I have my daddy and he loves me & my baby girl to pieces. Good advice
I guess I am a bit bitter that I have to find and love another. And, that my daughter won't know her biological father. I can't imagine not knowing my father. This hurts me deeply.
