  1. It takes a while to get over the loss and feel “normal” again.
    Ask a mother who lost a child in the wars or similar tragedy. Won’t find much agreement. My daughter is an addict and abandoned 3 kids to enjoy the world of drugs.3 different fathers, one deported, one about 1/4 of a father one just a john from daughter’s prostitution. They all don’t have a mother or father now. Acceptance ? Well no choice there. Feel normal, be OK, life on life’s terms, things I cannot change, things over which I am powerless – don’t help much. As I reread your essay, I see you covered the physical pain not just emotional. That’s part of it. I intend to survive. This Grampa will be there for the kids anyway I can. This is my way of fighting back. The rescuer. We suffer but must not let the despair immobilize us.

    1. My heart, support, and respect for you. I can’t even imagine how it must have felt to see the daughter go through all of that. I somewhat understand what it feels like to be abandoned and raised by a single mother though. However, I have seen my maternal grandmother dealing with an addict son and I know how it tears apart your heart. You are the strongest and the most amazing parent. I am sorry I didn’t cover more of an emotional pain. I am more than sure you are the best Grampa in the world for the kids. They will grow up to be as wonderful as you. I whole-heartedly wish you only the best and more. Sending my good vibes on your way. Thank you for opening up your heart, I really appreciate it.
