BE and BC’s biological grandmother died about a year a half ago. I didn’t find out about it until after the fact, and unfortunately, it was BE’s eight-year-old biological cousin who told her. BE lived with her grandparents for the majority of her life before being placed into foster care.
BE and I have talked about that fact that she misses her first mother (FM) several times. But, this week was the first time that she brought up “Grandma D.” BE told me she was sad because she misses Grandma D. We talked about it a little bit and then we called Aunt S, Grandma D’s daughter, and FM’s half sister.
After BE was done talking with Aunt S about Grandma D, she decided she was going to make a card for her grandma. Here’s what she came up with:
Grandma D was not buried, so we can’t go visit her grave. Other than the card, I’m unsure about other ways I can help BE with this. Any ideas?
