That's the question Grief Encounter  tries to answer every day. The UK organization works to provide support services to children who have lost a parent. To share its mission with others, the non-profit ran an ad on British Mother's Day  to show what a child's life becomes when his parents are gone. The ad shows a young boy making himself breakfast, giving himself a bath, and tucking himself in for bed. Needless to say, these scenes stole, and then broke, our hearts.
