My youngest child is 16 months. When I was 8 months pregnant, my brother-in-law and his wife had a tubal pregnancy. After that happened, they have wanted nothing to do with me, my husband, or either of our kids. It has been almost 18 months now, and they find every excuse to hate us. (calling me horrible names, didn't show up to our wedding, literally having nothing to do with us) They haven't had anything to do with us at all, and if my husband and his brother talk, its his brother bashing me.
I have been going through this for so long, and they have no relationship with our boys, and I can't keep trying to mend things with them. I have tried numerous times, only to be called a snake, manipulative, and after my husbands money, etc. During this time, my mother in law, defended me, and they quit talking to her also- because "she took my side"
They had a baby girl on Monday and won't allow us to even see her. This is my first niece (I don't have any nephews either) My in-laws wouldn't even send me a picture message of my niece, saying they didn't want to sink in the sand with them. I ended up deleting my in-laws off my facebook friends because they were posting pictures of her, and I feel like I will get attached to a child I will never get to have a relationship with. I was really hoping things would pass, but at this point, I honestly don't know if this relationship can ever be repaired. After all of the hatefulness and hurt I've went through with this situation, I don't even want to try to mend things. Any advice on what I should do?
