I thought I did all the things I was supposed to with my children. I was the one they could talk to and I had talks with my kids all the time. They knew I loved them as I told them. All I can figure is that I coddled them too much. My daughter was very important to me and she was never want for anything. My son, I bought a wrecked 72 Chevelle and we spent 2 years rebuilding it. We talked all the time and spent lots of time in the garage just talking. After a 30 year marriage, my wife decided to file for divorce and the kids had a hard time with it. I had heart surgery after the divorce and then met someone and we married. My kids have never adjusted to my new wife. My kids have also let me go more or less. I don't understand how they can but they have and it seems unfair. I have helped them financially, physically, with my experience and my talents but they act like I do not exist. I have had people say that I need to give it time but I have been married for 2 years and nothing yet. I have a new grandson and I do not get to see him very often and it hurts. I haven't seen my son since Feb 6th, 2010 why? I'm a good guy and work very hard to be there for my kids. No luck.
