At some point, you will know when it is appropriate and right to say to her, "come lay down with me" in a nurturing, tender way and she will go with you to bed. Maybe sex will happen the first time she goes, maybe not until the next time or the time after that, but right now you are letting her know she can safely have and experience her feelings with you while her world feels so sad and complicated, and that is a good thing.
