loss of a child from drowning

I am the maternal grandmother of a beautiful 2 year old who drowned in my ex husbands pool. This happened a few weeks ago so the loss is new and very raw but it is only today that I got in touch with how much I blame my exhusband for the baby's death. How do I get passed this blaming and anger?

My dear, this is indeed a tragedy most unexpected and which will be indelible in your life and heart. Let him go because God Loves him more.
He was beautiful in life and he will eternally be Beautiful in Heaven, where he now rests.
Any loss be it young or old will dent our emotions no end but it will take a toll on your health if you refuse to move on! It was an accident of negligence but griping and resorting to blame game and perpetually anger will only sour your relationship with an ex-.
No amount of regret and grief will bring your little one back but be thankful for the fond memories you had with him for two wonderful years.
Let me tell you of how my nephew on his wife felt losing his 63 days old infant girl Adelia to daycare negligence! They sent the infant at 8:30am and by 10:30am she lay dead, choked by her milk bottle. The minders will not admit their mistake so we took them to Court.
To this day we commemorate her demise, and are still waiting for justice for the horrible day of our lives. All we have left is just her confinement days photos and lots of confidence that Justice will be served!
So lucky you, had a longer time and more memories to treasure, dear.
God Knows Best.
