I have not seen my first 4 grandchildren in over 5 years for my oldest daughter got in a big fight with younger sister and pulled me in the middle and when I claimed "switzerland" I became the worst parent in her eyes ever! Now mind you, when the two got into their fight, they were adults, yep, adults---my oldest daughter wanted me to hate my daughter along with her--1rst of all it was NOT anything Jerry Springer- the younger daughter was staying with her & husband for me and the younger duaghter got into a fight--and she ran to her sister, then the husband made too many demands on her - she had been married, seperated, and now being treated as a teenager- so she decided to leave & go on her own- her sister got mad at that! After that I called after the younger daughter for she wasn't speaking to me--and we finally made up which made my older daughter even angrier--and it ended on mother's day.
But she was going to brunch with the other grandparent's and I was not invited, my youngest daughter did something else-i don't remember what, and I went to see my mom--the middle daughter asked to go with, since we were talking again- I said sure. So my oldest daughter ended our relationship---and I knew she would keep the grandkids away form me, for they did that to his parents for a year- that grandma ended up on anti depressants. We were all very close to the grandchildren! When I realized she would not have anything to do with me - I went into depressed mode like someone died! Thank goodness I worked & worked with kids which helped for I found out I was going through mourning!
When I realized that- I stopped it- NO ONE DIED! However, I did not think she would shut me out for soooo long. This is my plan & what I do-- I think about them everyday, I just do & I pray to God to see them again---some friends show me pics when they can, I am in process of making a scrapbook of what I have, and even tho she 's is finally talking to me on a minimal leve- i still have not seen the kids except when her youngest sister had a baby almost 2 years ago for a couple of hours, but not my oldest grandson.But one day he will turn 18, if I have to wait until then-- and then I will look for him. They also now have two cousins--
And one day the truth will be known--for she tells them I am far away; I am 30 minutes away from them--and have never been further than that. I only have grandparent rights if they divorce or one of them dies (may that not happen) in my state.
