SINCE this letters page began I knew exactly the letter I should have written — but I didn’t have the courage. In fact I was terrified, I found lots of excuses — and yet I knew I that if I didn’t write, I would always regret not taking this opportunity.
So I am writing today to tell you how I feel. I am absolutely heartbroken that you do not want me in your life in any way and that I cannot see you, your wife and, most heartbreakingly, my grandchildren.
I have no understanding of this situation, I am not aware of having done anything to deserve this — all I know is that of the roles I have served in life my most important one, and that which I gave my all, was as a mother.
I have been told and have no problem believing that you are a wonderful father. I am happy you and your family have a good life and I hope in years to come that your children will remember you with fondness and love for the care you give them. Take care and lots of love Mam Name and address with Editor
