I am a young single mom with 2 special needs children and after I had my son who has beals syndrome I was completely ignored from both sides of my family. Every time I would be invited to something no one would talk to me and I would end up going home after a few minutes. Even if I were to stay for the whole occasion my kids and I are rudely talked about right in our presence. Now I thought talking behind peoples backs were bad but talking about them right in your face is even worse. I've tried talking to my father about them doing this to the kids and me but he won't step up to his family and stop them. It doesn't do me any good to try and stop it because I have tried and it just doesn't help. I never knew family members could be mongrels!!! Does anyone know how to stop them from bashing my kids for being who they are???
