New Mom Without a Mom

  • HI, I am a new mom. We recently adopted a beautiful baby boy (he is 7 monthsold now) and I am over the moon. The only thing missing is my mom. She passed away before my son was born. She always new that I wanted to be a mom and always told me that I would be a great one. I feel so bad because my son is missing out on knowing one of the greatest women in the world and I know she would have been an amazing Grandma. Afterall, she considered my cocker spaniel her Granddaughter. Iit's very, very hard without her. She was in addtion to my mom, my best friend.

  • *hugs* Diane-

    I know it is difficult, my mom passed in 1998. She never met my hubby, never got to meet my kids. Shoe would have LOVED my husband and would have ADORED the kids. It took me a long time to not be so sad. She had a very rough life though, and was very sick. We have her photos in the living room (we have a very neat one from the 1940's- her high school graduation picture) and my kids know that Grandma Joyce is happy in heaven (even though they don't really know what heaven is yet).

    Just know that she is there watching over you and knows that you have found such happiness and joy in your baby boy.

  • Hi Diane!

    Congrats on your litte boy. My husband lost his mother two years ago. The night she died, I found out I was prego. I had a little girl. We also have a little boy. We always say that their grandma would have loved to be a part of their lives everyday.

    I have my mom and I know how much I would feel what you are feeling. I am sorry.

    Enjoy your boy and your mom knows you are indeed a great mom.

  • Hi Diane, I'm so happy for you that you have your bundle of joy, and my heart just aches for you that you don't have your mother. I think the only thing that you can really do is shower all of your love and affection on your son, and make sure to pass down some of your Mom's traditions to him so that he can know her through you.

  • Thank you all so very much for your kind words, they are very much appreciated. I tell my son everyday about his special "Angel" in heaven and that's how he got his middle name. I make sure that the love I know she would have given him gets to him through me and my husband. I show him pictures of her everyday and tell him all about her.

    Thanks again.
