I suppose all children fear abandonment. Those raised by narcissists, or others, caught up in their own dramas, irresponsible, neglectful, disinterested should, perhaps, not become parents. This kind of behavior is inexcusable, apologies are mere band-aids on a deep cut, a trauma that can't be dismissed so easily. I know, I've been there. A heart-felt, tragic incident, story, poem.
