Isn't that just the hardest thing, Maria? Keep us posted on how it's going...
As for us, so far, he has just accepted what I've told him thus far. Today was a little hard because we have a very, very close person to us who is being deployed in about a week. I've been so concerned and my son sees that. So, first thing he did this morning (upon seeing me cry), was to say,"We need to say a prayer." So he launches into this long prayer, asking God to take care of "Cuya" (Tagolog for "Big Brother"). It was very touching to see how empathetic he is!
