      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

1450 views

I finally got to skype my grandson after 2 months of no communication from his Dad my daughters x as of divorce finalized after 4 years! I hv been visiting consistently 12 hrs away for 4 years! All of a sudden Dad cuts me off in early September mad about divorce! Tonight when finally got to speak to my grandson I'm asked by him who is only 5, " I thought you died" wt. who would do such a thing I've been nothing but there for money and support for 4 years! Can someone be that resentful & cruel as to say this to their son? I'm sick hearted !, and so angry!!!

OMG Coty, that's so awful! No wonder you're "sick hearted" and "so angry" at the same time!

 

Please consider, though, that this may have been GS' own conclusion and not something his dad told him. Either way, of course, it's painful and sad.

 

TG he knows better now! How come you finally got to talk to him? Has the dad relented a bit?? Or was this the result of legal intervention?

I just finished reading your story and I have to say, my own parents as a child did not speak to my fathers mother (my parental grandma) and I remember too asking my Mom if daddy's mom was dead? Its something kids wonder when they understand the dynamic of mom has a mom, but where is dad's mom, or vice versa.

 

I simply asked my mother, and within months contact was restored, it could have been something like that, the little guy asked dad if you were dead, and he realized he cant keep contact cut off like he had been, and to restore it.

 

Either way you should be appreciative that you are on the road of being an active grandparent again - CONGRATS :)

My heart goes out to you Coty.  Hopefully from here on out things start getting brighter and turn around for you. I am just so happy for you that things have been figured out, but like you, I would have been shocked over that comment. It will be hard to forget, but look forward, keep focused on the precious days ahead I know how you feel, my 4 yr old grand daughter told me I was a bad person, my ex his wife and sister heard it, commented oh my what did you do?when I brought it up 3 weeks after the matter (was at my grandson bday party when happened). My ex his wife and sister denied, told my daughter they never heard her say that, told her I was lying.  I got an email from that daughter of my 4 yr old granddaughter I’m no longer allowed near any of them. 

They are Christian her father in law minister etc. confused here especially since she keeps telling me I need to get to church

@Lori214 - How kind of you to draw on your own painful experience to reach out to someone else. However, we generally ask members not to post in threads or blog entries that are more than 3 months old, unless they are the OP (original poster) or it's a "stickypost"/thread pinned to the front of the forum.  Since this one is a few years old, I'm going to lock it down. See you elsewhere on the boards!
