Getty I remember the night you were born. I stumbled into the maternity ward long after hours and demanded to see you.
Every single day I hear from mothers and fathers who are grieving your loss. For almost 17 years now my child has been estranged from me. She left home as a teenager. At one point she was the absolute love of my life.
I would have died for her, period. I wanted more for her than what I ever wanted for myself. When she was growing up many friends shared with me that they wished they had the kind of relationship we shared.
I really believed we were close, very close. I never dreamt that one day she would walk away and never turn back. Nor did I ever comprehend her hatred and deep desire to hurt me. More than 15 years into the estrangement and she still tries to hurt me.
When children are little they are easy and often their love for us comes easily. When they grow up they begin to judge us. Yet not long after this she would estrange. For more than 23 years I was estranged from my own mother. What did my mother do to me that I felt this was an appropriate thing to do?
I believed the child that shared this and I never wanted my children around him after this information was made known to me.
It was easier for her to make me out to be a bad person rather than face the truth about the man that she married and stayed married to until he died.
She loved him above all else. I was eliminated from the family. And I made it easy for her to do this by walking away. Regardless of how justified I thought I was in removing myself and my children, this was not an ideal situation.
I was angry and I was hurt and I was disappointed in my mother. This lasted for many years until I came to peace and acceptance.
We never reconciled before she died. My sisters would decide to delete my existence from her obituary. Today I have more peace than ever before, I know that she knows the truth now.A letter to my daughter from me is special and lasting.
