A 32-year-old woman faced a distressing situation when her adoptee mother left her out of her will, despite all other siblings being included. Here is what she had to say:
Discovery of Adoption
At the age of 10, the woman learned from her parents that she was adopted. Her siblings were already aware of her adoption, yet they treated her as one of their own, creating a strong sense of familial connection.
Past Inheritance Disputes
Years later, their maternal grandmother passed away without a will, leading to legal disputes among her siblings. This turmoil persisted for three years, causing significant strain within the family.
Announcement of A Will
In an attempt to prevent the recurrence of such disputes, the mother decided to create a will. She expressed her intention to share the details of the will with her children to prevent any future conflicts, stating, “I don’t want any surprises, and I want you all to know exactly what you’ll receive.”
The Shocking Omission
As the mother began to list the beneficiaries and their inheritances, the woman realized she had been left out of the will. Her 25-year-old brother, speaking on her behalf, asked what she would receive. The mother abruptly stopped smiling and inquired if the woman had prompted her brother to ask. The woman denied it, but couldn’t help wondering why she had been excluded.
A Hurtful Accusation
The situation took a distressing turn when the mother accused the woman of greediness and ingratitude. She stated that her daughter “shouldn’t be greedy and should be grateful that she raised me because who knows where I could be and what I’m doing otherwise”.
A Change in The Mother’s Behavior
Following this emotional exchange, the mother withdrew to her room and remained secluded for an entire day. The mother’s subsequent interactions with the woman grew distant and terse, with a noticeable decline in phone calls and communication.
The woman’s father intervened in the situation, advising her to apologize for what he viewed as rudeness and disrespect towards their mother. When the woman explained her side of the story, her father defended their mother’s right to make decisions about her assets, asserting that the woman should not have challenged her.
The woman’s siblings attempted to mediate the conflict between their parents and the woman. However, their efforts seemed to exacerbate their parents’ unhappiness, with her father accusing her of turning her siblings against them.
The woman sought advice from the internet, questioning whether she was in the wrong for inquiring about her share of the inheritance. However, commenters were quick to come to her defence; one person commented, “Your mother is horrible for going straight to, “Hey, be grateful we adopted you.”
One commenter attempted to explain the mother’s behavior: “Your mother is projecting her guilt onto you. She decided she only wants to give her biological children anything, yet deep down, she knows that she is being nasty and unfair to you”.
The Rocky Road Ahead
Another commenter agreed that the way the woman was being treated was abusive, offering a word of advice: “Maybe invest in some therapy because I have a feeling your rough ride is only going to get worse before it gets better.”
