Soon to be step mom dealing with death

Cristina - posted on 08/06/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




My fiancee has a 10yr old daughter from a previous relationship. The biological mother whom the daughter lives with full time has been recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. The daughter is coming to the realization that she is going to lose her mom. As I have met the daughter on numerous times, to her I'm just a woman. But things are changing rapidly. I'm not sure how to help her deal with this. Heck I don't even know how to deal with this. Just looking for help in dealing with grief and death for both the girl and my fiancee.

Thank you

Oh that's so sad. I can only say just try to be a friends to her in this time. Also remind her you're not trying to replace her but if she ever just wants someone to talk to that'll you'll be there for her. The same for your fiance.
