I am 57, my common law iis 51, I had 3 kids and they lost their Dad 16 years ago in a suicide as we were going to separate, I always felt the girls had been brainwashed by their Dad and relatives, at the time, my girls were 14, 11 and my son was 8. My son acts normal with regular visits, lives with a good girlfriend, etc. My oldest is 31, has been anorexic, is married and now pregnant, have not talked to us for 6 months, very controlling and deletes a lot of people out of her life, the other is 27 married and has a 4 month old girl. I found out she had a girl on Facebook through my girlfriends account, just saw her for the first time on Xmas Day, was going pretty good but then I told her not to bring the dog on Easter and she freaked out, so she came here, abused me verbally and mentally, and finally I had to show her the door as she was swearing at me, I run a good daycare, I am a good person, very honest but has been abused physically, mentallay, betrayed by my husband when I was married, now I am praying for them to get help and to see my little baby Reese again and my future one who will be born this coming October........................any advice would be appreciated....................

Unfortunately because their Father is no longer around he will be put up on a pedestal in their eyes and whatever you say about him, even if it is the truth, they won't believe it.

All you can hope is that they will want to have you in their life soon, especially when the babies are born and getting older. Hope that they realize that they only have 1 Mother who loves them unconditionally and that they will want to have you in their lives soon.

I know it's hard at the moment but the more you try the more you will push them away.
