Have I not properly embraced the forgiveness process? I ask because I cannot whole-heartedly offer forgiveness to the one who hurt me. He remains non-contrite about what he did to me.

Forgiving another need not be whole-hearted.  Sometimes people have anger left over and that is not an indication that there is no forgiving that is happening.  Do you wish the other well?  Have you forgiven to a point?  For now, that may be enough.  You need not be hard on yourself.
