- Wedding: December 2011
For those of you who gave advice and support in my previous post (http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/nwr-how-could-a-mother-do-this) thank you all so much. I took my little sister home to her grandparents yesterday. She didn’t want to go home, and I promised she could come back very shortly. While she was down here, her biological father called her and told her that she wishes she wasn’t his daughter (because she doesn’t want to live with him because he is an alcoholic and abusive). She handled that one surprisingly well. On the way home we talked about the rest of her family. And the things she told me made my skin crawl. Her Aunt and 3 cousins live close and are always at her grandmothers house. They are all jealous (the grandmother has money they don’t and since my little sis is living there she is a bit spoiled). They say really nasty things to her “you don’t deserve to live with ___________” “nobody wants you” on and on and on… I can’t understand this lack of love that seems to be normal in her family. So with tears and hugs I dropped Kendra off. Within the hour (longgg car ride) my sister is calling me because the aunt is giving her hell (screaming cussing) because while my sister was here she missed a baby shower for her female cousin, and her male cousin went to the hospital (OD) and she wasn’t there. WTF? At 15 I skipped baby showers if I could, and I am sorry but how was my sister supposed to know he would land himself in the hospital.
My heart just hurts for her. I am working up the nerve to talk to FI about her coming here… I don’t know how he is going to feel about it. I have 2 kids (who he treats like his own), we have 2 dogs, a cat, full time jobs, a side business that keeps us crazy busy June-October. I honestly don’t know what kind of reaction he is going to have… Then there is still the grandmother (who is awesome) that I would have to approach…
Wish me luck ladies.
