This part really spoke to me. It was a new concept that maybe the child just doesn't want to have an adult relationship with us...for whatever reason. http://www.heartrelationships.com/when-your-grown-kids-reject-you/ This paragraph spoke to me the loudest. "It’s very hard to accept that there may be nothing you can do to repair the relationship between you and your adult child, but it sometimes happens that your child needs to reject you no matter what you say or do. Not every child wants an adult relationship with his or her parents. If that happens to you, make sure your life has meaning and purpose apart from your role as a parent."
