I speak from personal experience.
The good news is that children do grow up, many have a genuine desire to know the absent parent, and at this point, without the immediate influence of the alienating parent, one can heal old wounds and relish the opportunity to become a friend to the adult child.
I have personally had to let go of the past, come to grips with all of the time we missed together, and move forward.
