support for boy whose mother died at childbirth

Does anyone know of a book or article that might be of help to a child and his family (he will soon be 12) whose mother died at childbirth. He is the nephew of a dear friend, the boy really values family and as he is maturing, realizes more and more, that each birthday also marks the anniversary date of his mothers' death. He is was adopted by a paternal aunt and is being raised in a loving family. If anyone has suggestions on how best to support the boy and his family, it is much appreciated. If anyone has first hand experience with this, your knowledge would be much appreciated. The issue is clearly much bigger than his birthday, but is there any way to help him emotionally to deal with this reality as he matures.

What to do for my birthday, during Carmageddon?

My birthday is on the 18th and I plan on taking Monday off to make it a long weekend. But that happens to be the weekend of Carmageddon. Which, if you don’t live near Los Angeles, is when all hell will break loose because 10 miles of freeway will be closed for a Saturday and a Sunday. Truly the end of the world. [more inside]
