The woman had a difficult childhood, being raised mostly by her uncle and aunt due to her parents prioritizing her older sister’s serious illness. At the age of six, the woman was unceremoniously dropped off at her grandparents’ house by her parents, who never returned to pick her up.

Her uncle later took her in without any explanation, leaving the woman confused and hurt. It wasn’t until her grandparents and uncle explained the situation that she understood why she was left behind. The grandparents and uncle were livid at the parents for their actions.

Since that time, the woman has only seen her parents a handful of times and decided to stop having contact with them when she was twelve years old. Despite this, the woman was able to form a close bond with her aunt and uncle, who were unable to have children of their own and considered the woman to be their miracle child.

Tragedy struck the family when the woman’s sister passed away between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The woman made the trip back from school for the funeral but stayed in the back and left before her biological parents could talk to them. The parents called the uncle to try to talk to the woman, but she declined to speak with them at that time.

During Christmas, the biological parents finally caught up with the woman when she went to midnight mass with her gran. They approached the woman and tried to give her a hug, but the woman pretended not to recognize them and backed away.

When the parents told her that they were her parents, the woman replied, “My parents are at home.” She went to sit down with her gran, and the parents sat behind her, staring at her. On the way out, the parents asked if she really didn’t recognize them, and the woman replied, “Oh, are you my dad’s brother? I think I remember you from when I was little.”

Her Grandmother Agreed with Her

The woman’s gran supported her actions, but other family members thought she was too harsh, especially given the parents’ grief over their daughter’s death. However, the woman did not believe that the parents should get a pass just because they remembered her now that her sister was gone.

She Remained Firm

The parents wrote a long letter expressing their hurt and claiming that they would always be the woman’s parents, but the woman remained firm in her decision to cut off contact with their biological parents. The woman felt that her parents had made a choice to prioritize her sister’s illness over their other child, and that they had never taken responsibility for their actions or tried to make amends.

A Lovely Life

Another person commented, “That is a classy response! It lets them know that you remember what they did, even if they want to pretend like they don’t. OP owes them nothing & I am so glad OP didn’t display any anger towards them. OP was classy and to the point. If the sister was alive, the parents STILL would not be reaching out! They only want to talk to OP now because the sister died. Nope!”
