Hi worried mom,

I want to extend my condolences on the loss of your baby. I am so sorry for you. There are so many feelings to deal with. As for Justin, I am no expert, but I would just start slowly and give him alittle more responsibility. Explain the best you can to him what you expect of him and praise him if he accomplishes something new.

Good Luck, Netti
