Quoting JoAnna &hearts's Jett:" So I have a brother, who I was super close with, well all of my sisters and I were close with him. Most ... [snip!] ... I'm talking about my dead brother, when in reality he's very well alive and lives not even 3 minutes away from my parents. "
I haven't seem one of my sisters in more then six years. Family still invites her over, brother even said she could move in with him to try and get her closer. She is adopted and found her biological family, who stole money from her. Now she lists them as her siblings on facebook, and ignores me completely. I broke down this holiday season and wrote a long message asking if she still wanted to be my sister...no reply.
I've stopped wrapping presents for her, don't even know her address or phone number. Our kids have never met her, not once. I still cry about her on her birthday, and big holidays. She was the one I looked up to as a kid.
