@tmsing:  It sounds like a sticky situation… What is your husbands relationship like with his adoptive parents? It’s a shame his birth mother broke off contact but it might be for the best by the sound of your post. Maybe you can talk to your husband again about keeping in touch with his half-siblings? It might be helpful for them to have a male presence in their lives. Plus, your husband could find out more about his heritage via them? Are they in touch with their parternal familiy? Like the parternal grandmother you have mentioned…

I’m so sorry, it sounds like a mess :(. Hopefully, for his own sanity, his birth mom stays away until she’s able to treat him kindly. 

If I were in your shoes, I would try to spend more time with his adoptive parents, and let them know how much they mean to him.

I know it’s hard to ignore the birth mom, though — my husband’s own mother has a horrible track record of going weeks or even months at a time without calling or making contact. It’s awful to witness someone treat your husband so cruelly. Hang in there.
