Reconnecting Across Time: A Letter from an Adult Child to Estranged Parents

Dear Mom & Dad,

I hope this message finds you well. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately, and there’s something I really want to share with you. As I’ve grown older, I’ve come to realize how much I miss the connection we once had. Life has taken us in different directions, and it’s left a void in my heart that only you can fill.

I want you to know that despite the challenges we’ve faced, I hold no resentment towards you. I understand that life can be complicated, and sometimes we drift apart without meaning to. But I believe that it’s never too late to rebuild what we once had.

I miss the conversations we used to have, the laughter we shared, and the bond we had. I long for the opportunity to reconnect with you, to mend what’s been broken, and to create new memories together.

I’ve also come to realize that I’ve grown up and matured over the years. I can see now that I’ve been judgmental and difficult at times, and I want to apologize for any hurt or frustration I may have caused. Having a child of my own has given me a newfound appreciation for the challenges of parenting, and I understand now more than ever the complexities of raising a child.

Please know that I’m here whenever you’re ready to talk. My door is always open, and I miss you more than words can express.

With love and hope,



It is never too late to start again. Reconciliation is possible especially when judgment is replaced with grace. If you need support in reaching out to your estranged family we can help. Email us at or
