I've wanted to write about this topic for quite some time now, but never thought it was the right time. This is something that has gone on for many years and has affected my life in so many ways.
I haven't spoken to my parents in almost 4 years. There is so much behind why we haven't and it would be far too much for me to write about on the blog. Through it all though, I've experienced so many different emotions. From feelings of anger, frustration, hatred, loneliness, jealously, and disappointment, to feelings of peace, love, happiness, and relief. Sometimes when I think about it, I don't know what to feel. Right now, though, my biggest feeling is frustration and sadness for Kaden.
Unfortunately, my parents have been missing out on the happiest time period of my life (coincidentally, the past 4 years). They've been missing out on a beautiful marriage Kirby and I share, and most importantly of all, the birth and life of their first grandchild, Kaden. As happy and fulfilled as our family of three is, it would be that much better with my extended family in it.
It is sad to think the time lost so far, especially Kaden's birth, can never be experienced by them. Kirby, Kaden and I made a promise that we will always support and respect one another and do everything we can to never let anything tear our family apart.
I am thankful for the love and support of my husband, family, and friends who listen to and help me through this. I hope that one day Kaden receives all the love and attention he deserves from his entire family.
