Wow.  I can’t even imagine what you are going through.

My only words of encouragment are that, as you said, your mom would be so happy for you.  She would not want you to dwell on what cannot be changed but to instead focus on your beautiful, amazing future.  Your Fiance will be your family now, and while nothing or no one will ever take the place of your parents, you can focus on your future.

Do you have a best friend to share these experiences with?  Could you carry a photo of your mother with you to all your appointments?  I know it isn’t the same but at least she would be “there” with you.  You could also do something sweet and sentimental to include your parents in your wedding.  You could wear something of your mothers, include a slide show, use their vows, or dance with one of your brothers to your parents wedding song.

I know it must be extremely difficult but this is supposed to be the happiest time of your life.  Your parents would want you to be happy.  Try to let yourself smile and enjoy every moment 🙂

@Ayee: I understand EXACTLY where you’re coming from. So right now. I want you to put your arms around you, and hug yourself. That’s from me.

I lost my mom when I was 14. A year later, I met my Fiance. And my dad had basically stopped parenting me when my mom died (my dad did drugs and stuff). So FI’s mom took me  under her wing. I lost her a year ago to breast cancer. So lots of love and hugs from me.

I second the idea of the picture. 

But if you ever just want to talk, feel free to message me here, and we can exchange info and chat on messenger somewhere.
