My daughter is constantly sad about being the only child. She did have my brother and my mum until she was three but they both died within a short time. Her dad has always been absent. He does have various children around I think (he was a musician) but they will be considerably older and I have no idea where they are. So I am the only immediate family she has and she feels frightened of it just being me. I have cousins and I have done all I can to involve us in their lives but they are older than her (she is now 18) and so there is a gap. I don't know what to do to make her feel better. Anyone in similar boat?
