Question: Dear Luise: I’ve had to grow beyond being a mother, and i think I’ll get there. But my elder son won’t have anything to do with me EVER. He has cut-off all communication! The rejection hurts beyond words. This hurts more than i can ever mention. There is no way i deserve such cold-blooded rejection. not by an God’s way either. Please Advise, D.
Answer: Dear D.: I have had this Website for eight years and your question is the one most often asked. This came as a shock to me, even though I have had a similar situation with the eldest son. I really thought I was alone with it and it was a rare thing. Not so.
I can’t tell you why it happens, but what I can tell you is that I felt those of us dealing with such heartbreak needed more support and understanding than a question and answer venue. As a result, I started a Web-forum for women who were dealing with issues involving adult children and extended families. It’s become a place to heal for many. Please come over to www.WiseWomenUnite.com. I will work with you there but you will have others who offer caring and sharing as well. Blessings, Luise
