Bringing back to foreground a process whose terminal is killed

I have started a new process in a terminal in the background (i.e. using &) and have closed that terminal. My program is still running but I cannot look at its standard error. Is there a way to bring that process back to the foreground in a different terminal? (or is there otherwise a way to look at its standard error now that its terminal close?)
Note that I don't want to terminate and re-run the process.

I have a feeling it's not possible but thought maybe someone has an idea?
