I joined GN when I became estranged from my DD and subsequently GC, and needed to connect with anyone going through the same heartbreak.
The connection was broken for around 8 years, during which time my GD was born without my knowledge. Both GC have been brought up believing their step-granny is their real gran. We reconciled around 2yrs ago when GC were 5 & 8yrs old.
My deep concern is I feel I don't know them, I'm a total stranger in their lives and as much as I'm drawn to them as lovable children, I feel no deep connection. This is a very painful situation to be in and I so much want it to be different.
I suppose my question is -- has anyone else out there in GN land had (or having) the same experience? and if so, will it ever change?
