I guess I was as understanding as I was simply because I have been through a similar situation. I can see why everyone has their panties in a bunch though too. See My MOTHER... as in my blood, she didn't do a damn thing for my son or I. We were homeless for a while after my ex-husband left us, and she told me off when I asked to stay with her. My baby shower consisted of my grandmother, aunt and best friend. All gifts were garage sale stuff and mismatched. Of course as a first time mom you want only the best for your baby, but we were dirt poor and my family wasn't in a position to help. His family thought I intended to get knocked up (i didn't btw) and so they didn't help a bit, even though they were well off. They tried to get me to abort.... SMH. I guess when you said you had awful inlaws I kind of related.
And since you are new to this site, I will tell you this, if it's a VENT, put "VENT" in the subject line, and be sure to elaborate a little more. It can get messy if you don't
