... emotionally abandoning your children as you did 20 years ago isn't normal. Why would think you would have any influence in "normalizing" your sons now when, quite frankly, you've got more than a few screws loose yourself? Nothing like leaving your kids when they are young, then swooping in 20 years later only to judge their character.
I was very depressed, in a dead-end job and marriage I didn't like. I was looking for a way out. I regret my decisions, I know they were immature.
