I'm posting here hoping to get a bit of advice as this forum always seems very kind.
5 years ago my husband became estranged from his parents. I'm not sure how much to explain about the estrangement - but it was on their side and nothing to do with anything my husband had done (as far as a reasonable person would be concerned). He tried to call them to establish contact, but we haven't heard from them since.
I have two daughters - ages 6 and 3. Since we last heard from my husbands parents 5 years ago the girls don't know them at all and have never asked about them. I'm worried if they do ever come back into our lives they will drop the contact again, and this time it will happen to our very loving girls. The estrangement was terribly stressful at the time.
My plan is that if they do make attempts to get back in touch we could have a period of just the adults seeing each other for 6 months before we introduce the children. There is ZERO sign of them wanting to see us again but I do find the estrangement stressful still after all these years and want to be prepared if they do get in contact. Has anyone been in this situation before? What is reasonable and best for our children?
