I know a woman who ran off to a small island with a man to start a new life. She left her then 9-month-old son with her eldest daughter and promised she would return to take her son.
She has now been gone for 13 years and she is yet to return. She has had another son with her man and has completely forgotten about her children.
About a week ago she messaged me about reaching out to her children. She says that she has become sick and is coming home so her kids can take care of her. Now McKoy tell me, do you think her children are obligated to take care of her? Why should her kids care about what is happening to her? Should I even waste my time to even try and help her get in touch with her kids? What do think I should do?
I would advise you to not get involved in family matters. If she asks you for help simply tell her to ask a family member to get to her kids. It’s bad enough that she doesn’t even have her kids’ numbers. She is obviously trying to find someone to take of her and her child now that life has flipped the script on her. The worst part is that she has been gone for 13 years and she hasn’t helped her daughter with her own son for all these years. It’s completely up to her kids if they want to help her but I don’t think I would if I was in their shoes.
