Good for you! God, when I reach BEC status with someone there is almost no coming back from it lol. I think it shows real maturity that you were able to let go of your anger…it’s not easy to do that, but it’s definitely healthy.

This is nice to hesr that people can bond after having tense and difficult relationships. Sorry to hear about your SIL. I know you updated before but it’s still gotta be rough. Thanks for sharing! Hugs

It’s so nice that you are a part of their lives when they need it most. The poor kids, my heart goes out to them for their loss, but they will always be thankful for having had your family in their lives.

Sansa85 :  I’m sorry your family has been so challenged, but its wonderful that you’ve managed to be there for their children and put differences aside.

That’s amazing, bee. It’s never too late to put differences aside and find a place in your heart for new friendships. So happy to hear you’re in such a good place with him and his family.

Sansa85 :  i guess i missed your previous post (it would be helpful if you stated that this is an update to give it context). my response was because you didn’t seem to be asking any sort of question or advice, so it was unclear as to why you were posting this (again, if you had said this was an update post, then that would have answered my confusion).

I had to look up BEC. I am so out of touch. 

Glad to hear the update. I commend you for overlooking the reasons you previously had to dislike associating with the brother in law in order to be their physically and emotionally for him and the kids. I am sure you are an integral part of their healing process.

Sansa85 :  thank you for sharing. It’s funny how life works. I know those kids and your Brother-In-Law are so thankful for your family’s help and kindness.
