I only need think about my last child leaving for college next year and I start bawling. It saddens me beyond belief that my home will be empty of my children. My whole life has revolved around caring for them - and it's been my great joy to do so. I never wanted - or needed- anything else - raising those kids fulfilled me in every possible way. I have a wonderful husband who has a professional career that he finds very rewarding. He's been an absolute wonderful, gentle, kind, involved father but has a life outside the home, where I do not, so the last leaving is going to affect me in a more profound way I think. I just want to talk to someone whose lived through what I'm about to be facing. Help!
