What a journey! My heart goes out to you. Although I know this is a slightly different situation, I have had two step-daughters since they were 2 and 4. They are now 32 and 34. They both completely shut me out of their lives for years. I wasn’t sure they would ever come back. But, they finally did. It was years and years though. I think you are doing the right thing to practice acceptance.
