Obviously this could be upsetting. Its not quite clear from your message - has your ex gained custody such that the boy will remain with him permanently ? Or, in terms of custody, does the boy alternate time spent with each of you ? Or was this just something that you both, as parents, discussed and decided ?
Of course you will miss him, but if you are, as you seem to be, satisfied that he will be fine and happy with his dad, and better off in some ways, think about how much sadness is appropriate. There will be an element of getting used to him not being around each day, physically and emotionally, but one grows used to this - but each of us at our own pace.
Isn't the boy still to visit you and spend time with you ? Try to enjoy planning for the time you will still spend together, then.
