my son is now 32 and is dwelling in the past, and can not put a closure to the events that has made him bitter towards me for the past fifteen yrs.
I can not bring the past forward to make it right, but to move forward. I have tried to make up for all the wrong in many ways, I have written him, and asked for his forgiveness, but that also has failed. I am so saddened by all this, and I am at a loss.

One of the hardest things I've learned about parenting is that even should you do everything perfectly, our children will still be their own people. Love your Son unconditionally and stay in touch. At this point you are hurting yourself and letting his unforgiveness hurt you too. My son and I were estranged for nearly 10 years after my divorce, I never lost touch although he rarely initiated contact. He came around, although he has never apologized for the hateful way he treated me, his siblings tell me it still weighs heavy on him. I'm now living how I need to live without regrets concerning my three grown kids. I say what I think, I help if can when they ask, and I always tell them I love them. Even when they are arrogant and know it all and have screwed up for the umpteenth time. Mom- It's time for you to take care of you and love yourself.
