My Life Changed Instantly

I have 4 almost grown children from a previous marriage. I also have 1 child and 1 on the way by my deceased husband. My husband was shot and killed on July 18, 2012 while working on a home. A 17 year old child entered the home and attempted to rob him. My life changed instantly. I am lonely, depressed, and missing my husband; but with God all things are possible. I am learning to lean on him more. My 4 year old daughter asks for her daddy constantly. Right now I don't even know what to tell my unborn child. I just stumbled across this group online and to hear others that are going through the same. I cannot believe that I am 37 year old widow already. It's just too soon.

How horrific! I am sorry and am sending prayers to you and your children. I know how hard it is on the little ones. Have her draw pictures of Daddy all the time. Make sure she includes him on family pictures however she sees Daddy as part of the family now. And if that is right there beside all of you, then that is great! I've asked my 11-year-old to always include Dad in our family drawings to which she replies, "Of course." Again, I'm so very sorry.

I am so sorry for your loss. I am 30 with three kids ten and under and am also a widow. It's tough and it doesn't get better but it does get easier. If you ever need anything I am here for you. <3
