No! She left me when I was two days old, with her parents & also left behind a short note for her mother before running away in the middle of the night like the coward she is. She took off to be with a man she met while pregnant with me & married to my Dad. She was only 17 but knew what she was doing. The man she left me to be with had told her he'd Never raise another man's child so she knew that I couldn't be a part of her life with him. My maternal Grandparents raised me & always encouraged me to give my natural mother a chance & so they forced me to spend many summers with her & communicate with her. I didn't have a choice in the matter. At age 14, I went to live with her to see if we could build some type of relationship but her scumbag husband, the same inbred, backwoods dolt she left me for 14 yrs before, came after me sexually, shortly after I moved in with them. I didn't have a trusting relationship with my mother at this time & didn't feel I could go to her so I instead went to my high school counselor & told her what was happening. I also let her know that my mother's, husband's, Father had touched me inappropriately more than once. The counselor called my mother before I'd made it home from school that day & when I walked into the house, my mother began screaming at me & telling me I was nothing more than a F'ing liar who came there to ruin her life & if I didn't apologize to both her huband & to her father-in-law, then I could get the 'F' out of her house! So, I called my Grandmother's sister, packed my bags & left! After that, my maternal Grandparents tried many times to force me to let my mother back in, which I did to some degree but I got kicked in the teeth again & now have not spoken to her for about 12 years. The only true sadness I have about it is the fact that I have two younger sisters & a younger brother that I haven't seen since they were all under the age of 10. That hurts a bit! As for my mother, I hope to never lay eyes on her again but I fear I my wish will not be granted.
