What do I do when my adult son refuses to speak to me or let me see my grandchild?

My son is 30 years old. We were always pretty close until he unexpectedly got married at a court house. I've never met his wife and have never seen my 3 year old granddaughter. His wife hates me because I called her a cold hearted and selfish when she wouldn't give me any news of my son's return home from Afghanistan. Later on, I called her a Bitch on Facebook (after she blocked me), but quickly took that post down. I have tried to apologize for 2 years with no results. I've sent messages and letters with no response. I don't have their phone numbers, but did get their address before my son also blocked me from Facebook. I don't understand how anyone can be so unforgiving to their own mother. I've never done anything like that before, but I was so emotional when my son was coming home from a war zone and said something I shouldn't have. It's like my son's wife just doesn't want to forgive or even try to understand my point of view. Does anyone have any suggestions?

maybe try to go through to her parents VERY CAUTIOUSLY and explain you know you were wrong .. and never judge his wife again ..maybe you can get to your son at work or someplace she won;t be .. to let him know how sorry you are or to her i would keep writing nice letter explaining your ill behavior and let them know you miss them and it shouldn't be like this ..Good luck to you and never give up maybe someday they can Grow up enough to learn forgiveness ..
