Is it possible that people are just busy and not in the habit of connecting with family? Are you sure it's as simple as "they can't be bothered"?

It takes time to build relationships. What have you done to research out and connect with your siblings?

Also, it takes time for a parent-child relationship to change into a parent-of-an-adult-child relationship, and the transition isn't always easy. Your mom may not mean to treat you as a child. It may just be a habit.

Why do you think she looks down on you?

I don't have a biological family, so maybe I don't get it, but if these people--the sister and brother--don't want to be friends with you, why does it matter to you? Why don't you just create relationships with people who do want a relationship with you? I don't like people who don't like me, so it doesn't bother me that they don't like me. I just love the people who love me back.
