I havent seen my mom in 3 years. Shes never met my daughter who is 2. She uses the excuse for not coming to see us bc she lives 9 hrs away.. BUT when my daughter was first born she was only an hr and a half away. My stepdad even came to stay with us one wkd so he could meet my daughter (when she was about 9 months old) We've only spoke on FB one time in the last year..
I used to see my mom one to three or four times a week (we lived a few minutes away from each other and we hung out all the time). I haven't seen her though in over a year. Not since we moved here to Japan. :-( We're hoping to go for a visit this summer but otherwise we'll have to wait until after the 2 year mark to visit. We don't talk much on the phone because neither of us are phone people plus we have to renew our magic jack right now.
I don't communicate with my mother. I was raised in the Klan and when I got old enough to see the world how it truly is, I decided I did not want that for myself or my children. I love her and I miss her, my dad and four sisters, but I can't have that lifestyle around my babies. I haven't seen her or any of my VA family in five years. The last time I spoke to her or any of my family from VA it was in June 2012. Her racist and cruel comments about my stepson & stepdaughter (half black) ended all contact with her for good.
