Hello, I haven't been on here in awhile and it looks like a whole new crowd. I Disassociated myself about 8 years ago. Went through a divorce and shunning from most my family. I fought a legal battle to keep good steady contact with my son. We have had lots of good times. I got re-married, have a one and a half year old daughter. Life is good and I have adjusted except...till now.
My son did get baptized somewhere in there. I decided today to ask him point blank his intentions after he turns 18. He informed me he wouldn't be coming to visit anymore. He said he respects my decision to leave the religion but in his view he will have to drastically limit his contact with me. He is not sure what he will do about his little half sister but that will have to be very limited also. He said this without much emotion although maybe some anger (mostly about not wanting to hear why I chose the path I did).
I have dreaded this day for a long time and now we have about 5 months left.
