another loss

My daughter is grieving again.  No, no one died this time, but she certainly feels like it.  Her best friend, Adrian, moved away.  She didn't get to say goodbye to him, and she has been crying for two days now. 
Here's the story of Adrian: 
Adrian came to Macy's class a few months ago and they have been fast friends ever since.  On his first day, Macy ran to him and tried to talk to him and gave him a hug.  We found out quickly that he and his Mom don't speak English.  But that didn't stop our kiddos from loving each other!  We walk to school in the mornings, and Adrian and his Mom would meet us by the park and the kids would walk together (holding hands all the way) to school.  It is so difficult as an adult to befriend someone who doesn't speak the same language as you.  It was frustrating to me to not be able to communicate with Adrian's Mom at all!  But, I could tell that her heart was also warmed by the love our kids have for each other. 
When Macy got out of school yesterday, she immediately started crying.  She said through tears that Adrian moved to a new house and a new school.  It just broke my heart to watch her lose someone else she loves.  She has lost two guys really close to her in the last two years, but this loss hit her harder than those.  And he's still alive and well!  I guess a loss is a loss, no matter why the person is gone from your life.  So, please keep my baby girl in your prayers.  Her heart is sad, and she didn't enjoy school much today.  But, she is tough and I know she'll be fine. Her Mama is just getting tired of watching her hurt.
