My father left my mother with 2 teens girls, 14 and 18, I took it rough being a daddy's girl. My biggest issue with her was I felt that she didn't love me so I couldn't love her back. If this is how your children are feeling, I would say do everything in your power to let them know you love them and being away from them makes you sad. Don't get mad at them for not calling you or spending time with you because that builds up their defenses. I say fight your heart out to let your children know you love them, go to see them, call them, ask how their day was and let them know that you want them to have fun so you won't take up too much of their time. Show them that you care about what they want, I really think that will make them second guess the way they are treating you. I'm sorry if you tried all this and it didn't work. I hope they come around, for all of your sakes. Best of Luck and God be with you.
