I guess mine is a different kind of grief. I have 4 adult children. Two don’t have any contact with me. I send birthday and Christmas messages and get no replies. I went through an acrimonious divorce 29 years ago. I didn’t get custody of my children. I’ve done everything since I left to stay in contact. My son recently got engaged and didn’t tell me. One daughter has been married now for over 3 years and did the same. I wasn’t able to go to her wedding. I’m not a bad person, I just left their Father in difficult circumstances. Their Father doesn’t willingly speak to me or communicate. So this makes me feel like I have lost them forever. My youngest is Autistic and I see him and one daughter. The daughter that speaks to me is also ostracised by her Father and the extended family, as well as her sister and brother. I had hoped when the children got older they would come to understand the difficult decisions I had to make.
