What moving words, I hope one day she gets to read them and realises how much love you have for her.

That's lovely Jane. If there's any justice in this world your dear GD will read it one day.

I couldn't find the words but Blondee has said it all.

That is so lovely Jane and I cannot begin to imagine the pain you are suffering. If I couldn't see my little ones, just doesn't bear thinking about. I truly hope that one day your GD will be back in touch with you and you can once again enjoy her company.
Love and hugs

Dear Jane, we had a year of going through what you have experienced. My lovely grandson is now 12, and happily we were reunited a few short weeks ago. We never gave up, and were using every sort of strategy and lateral thinking we could in order to maintain even flimsy contact with him. He now knows the efforts we made, because we showed him some examples of what we did, like copies of letters sent to him that he didn't receive, texts to a phone that we then learned had the Sim changed, and so on. He did receive some things, like DVDs and books, which he loved.

The thing is, circumstances changed all of a sudden and there was no way we could have predicted it, but my son went into my grandson's school and requested a meeting about progress, then saw his son that day whilst ex-DIL was around. That developed into grandson asserting his right to see his dad and grandparents in front of teachers, and she was shamed into allowing it. We haven't looked back. My son has been taking his little boy to school and picking him up once or twice a week, taking him swimming, out for his brthday treat with friends, and visiting relatives, including his little twin cousins who he had not seen until they were 4 months old.

It can happen to other families, too. We were prepared to live with this awful emptiness for as long as it took, and no-one can imagine what that yearning feeling is like until they experience it for themselves. So painful - I would go to sleep thinking about him and wake up crying - I missed him so much. But things can and do suddenly change, and I hope you soon see your grandaughter, who will also have those lovely memories and wonder why they are not continuing. She is entitled to see you, and a 12 year old is different from a younger child who just goes along with everything. I hope you see her very soon. :)

simatmum - how wonderful that you are now reunited with your GS. I can only imagine the pain of not being able to see him and the joy when you were reunited. I hope your story gives hope to everyone on here who is denied contact - things can, and do, change and your family is proof. :)
