I haven't seen my nephew and niece since Christmas and the only communication w/my sister the last few months has been thru email. I haven't heard from her since last Friday, 3/28. She is apparently going to outpatient treatment right now, and I understand that w/therapy she may need to cut her family off for a while in order to deal w/what she's going thru. But I can't deny that it hurts me that I can't see her children, I love them and only want the best for them and her. I want her to know I love her too, but I am so angry w/her right now! When I asked why my husband and I couldn't just come get the kids and spend a day w/them, she basically said she and her husband want to talk to us about what's going on before we see them. Since I've always been close to mom and she's probably jealous of that, I feel like she is transfering her issues w/mom to me. But I am not my mom! Her issues w/mom have nothing to do w/me. I just want to see those kids and be in their lives. I love them so much and don't want to miss out on seeing them grow. I want to know if any of you can understand where I am coming from? And also, any thoughts on her actions she's taking against me and the famliy? Am I being selfish? I could go on and on but I will stop now! =) Thanks for reading.
