Sunday Update

Bio-mom and I spoke. I’m sorry, but I can’t help but get the feeling that she is dangling the girls like a carrot in front of me. I don’t like being teased and I certainly don’t like being manipulated. Frankly, I don’t know where it will go from here. We’ll just have to wait and see.

I haven’t spoken to my mother since the day before Easter. Which leaves me in an interesting dilemma: Do I send her a Mother’s Day card? Feel free to weigh in on this one, but understand, I have spent my entire life being emotional abused by this woman.

In case you are interested in winning a free copy of Read My Lips you can check out Teri’s blog for details.

Make sure and check back on Thursday when I post my first book review for litFUSE!

Do you WANT to send her a mother's day card?

I'n sorry about bio-mom. I don't like the thought of her using the girls like that. I hope she will come around and you will be able to have some kind of relationship with the children.

Hi Heidi, I really don't know if I want to send one or not. Either way there will be fallout. If I send it, the cycle may start over again. If I don't, well, let's just say it will be ugly.

Re: the mother's day card. Hmmm....I'd probably send one. It doesn't take much to do, and it sounds like it's making big statement if you don't. My 2 cents only. :)

That mother so does not have the girls' best interests at heart.

Despite God wanting us to honor our father and our mother, implied in that commandment is that they are worthy of being honored. A lifetime of emotional abuse pretty much would have me thinking that her Mom card needs to be revoked. I guess I would send a not-too-specific-bordering-on-generic card and leave it at that. I am truly sorry for you having to put up with this, Mrs. Annie.

Hopefully bio-mom will grow up too and start earning the title of "Mommy" for those two little ones. Not cool for her to be manipulative with you when all you have ever done is try and take care of those girls. (She is probably a Laker fan!) :)

I say send a card and then don't answer your phone for a week after so you don't have to hear her complain about it. =) And while you are out buying her card don't forget to get something really nice for yourself.

And I'm so sorry about bio mom, but a woman who isn't fit to mother her children can't be expected to be decent in her use of them. I'm going to keep those little princesses in my prayers tonight.
