I tried googling "amish forgiving children leaving" and found this:
Escaping the Amish – Part 2
Fascinating!
I am SO GRATEFUL I wasn't born into an Old Amish culture!!
I still don't know if the Amish forgive the children who leave though. (I have the impression that one can shun someone that they've already forgiven? Kind of like if one forgives a toxic ex-friend, but still wants nothing more to do with her?)
