“When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years.”
I think she would come to change her mind if you were to deliver that cheque in person Cody. Have you thought about going there?
She is resentful of your long absence and is hurting. What child wouldn't be?
What is keeping you from making a concrete positive statement in person? Not judging you, but children need to know parents really care, not with words but action. Money is not the most important thing. Her identity is damaged and you can do a lot to repair it as well as your relationship with your kids.
I hope you will seriously consider getting on a plane and going to them.

Right now I'm a bit messed up, my emotions are raw
But hope springs eternal, maybe, just maybe, I can fix this with time.
For now I need to take a step back and let her live her life.
I'll still be here to love her and pick up the pieces, even if she doesn't realise it yet.
One day she will.
