I took care of my grandson for a year (from age 1-2), because his mother, my now ex-daughter-in-law, abandoned him and my son, age 25, was having trouble coping with the situation, so I stepped in. However, after a year, my son was divorced and had sole custody and decided to move to Japan. I have been trying to cope with this separation for 9 months, but I am still having a hard time. It has occurred to me that I may actually be grieving this separation, even though, Thank God, my little grandson is very much alive and I get to see him frequently on Skype. But he is not with me and I so acutely miss him. Could I be going through the stages of grief?

I depends why your child has been taken away? If it is for the welfare of the child then there has been some serious problems in the house hold. Speak to your local health care provider for help. Not sure I understand this post!
