Hello, I'd like to introduce myself

My name is Dinese. I have a wonderful husband of 24 years, 3 daughters, and 6 grandchildren. I was born during my mom's first marriage. My dad, adopted me when I 2. I never met my bio - dad. With my mom's second marriage, I have 4 half sisters. When I was 2 years old, my mom's husband adopted me. We were always a very close knit family. Then the deaths started. I lost both my parents, and 2 sisters. Be 12 years for dad, and 8 years for my mom and one of my sisters. My 2 living sisters cut me out of their lives. All I do is cry. How can you cope, I looking for answers.

Hi Dinese, sounds like you and your husband have a nice family of your own.

I come from a broken marriage family as well. I have 6 siblings which my Mom was married 3 times to 3 brothers. My Dad is gone, and also my 2 uncles who were both married to my Mom at different times have passed away. We lost 2 of my brothers in separate accidents.

My husband and I recently moved away from our home town, family, and kids. It’s been horrible for me. I want to go home so bad, but we sold our house there, and bought one in the new place. If there ever was a time for a do over it would be now for me. It’s a nightmare, and I cry all of the time as well.

What’s the issues that caused your sisters to shut you out of their lives. Is there any way to reconcile?

I have 3 sisters all who live close where we moved from. I can’t stand the thought of me not being able to be with them, or with my own grown kids. I have 2 grandchildren also who I miss dearly.


To be honest with you, I have no idea what I could of done. I was my mothers first child from her first marriage. She then divorced, and my stepdad adopted me when I was 2. Then my parents had my 4 sisters. I never met my bio-dad. But about 5 years ago, I met my half brothers, and half sister. My sister is making it sound like I did a horrible thing. And says I slapped my parents in the face.I tried to explain to her, it wasn't like that. That she has no idea what adoption feels like.

I understand about missing the grandchildren. 4 of my grandchildren live in Arizona, i'm in Wisconsin.
