I am sorry all this is happening within your family and I know it must be painful for you because I know how much my real family means to me. I am most fortunate to be close to my kids and treasure that connection beyond any other.

I was never close to my family of origin but I know the kind of pain that causes. When my parents died their was no connection there but I did cry because I felt the pain of realizing that they would never be able to be that to me and weren't capable of it and for the loss of that important relationship as it was always missing in action.

Windy, I don't get pleasure in the fact that you are not close to your uncle now (sorry I confused him for your dad). It just saddens me the depth of loss that so many have. I have had to build family of choice as well as work hard to build meaningful relationships and close trusting ones with my kids, now adults.

I really do wish the best for you and yours.
