It was my daughters decision to estrange from me 22 years ago when my husband and I divorced. He encouraged my children to take sides. My elder dc would not play that game but my younger daughter took the side of her father and as a teenager decided to live with him.
He then discouraged her from wanting me in her life etc . Over the years I have tried many times to re connect with her , sadly to no avail.
I have throughout those 22 years sent every birthday and Christmas card money ( which is always accepted / cheques cashed etc )
She married and went on to have her own children ( which I also send birthday cards to inspite of never meeting )
I've wrote letters asking her to meet , told her I love her, everything in my power to rekindle some form on communication .
But now , I think that after 22 years I've given up and have resigned myself that I need to stop trying and also stop the card sending .
Can I ask what you lovely ladies / gents would do ?
