If you are estranged from your adult child, if your child has cut you out of his or her life—whether for a long or short time—it is a gut-wrenching experience. When your child cuts you out of her life it provokes deep feelings of shame, guilt, bewilderment, and hurt, all of which can easily turn to anger. On top of that, it can also arouse people’s worst suspicions (surely, the Smiths must be terrible parents for their daughter to cut them off like that!) and leave you feeling judged, even by friends and family.

Losing acess to your children was one of the main reasons I refused to transition until it became life or death for me, and I am thankful every day that it didn't happen to me. The advice in this article seems to make sense, but it is so important to just keep the door open.

I so wish everybody regains contact and support from their children, but I know the reality is that sometimes, it just won't happen, and in the end, we have to get on with our lives.

Hugs,

Allie
