My DS has two children who he no longer sees through no fault of his own, I have explained all of this in other posts. It is too long and drawn out to explain again but I was surprised yesterday when he came round with his two little boys aged almost 5 and almost 3. I mentioned to him that I had to deliver Easter Eggs yet to the two he no longer sees. He said quietly that the two little ones had no idea that they had a brother and sister in the next town. I found this hard to take in. I know its up to him but I feel (and am probably right) that it is not his decision but my DiL. She is very jealous of his children and will not allow any photographs of them in the house. She even said to me once that she would not have any pictures of a child who hated her. Now my GD was 7 when she first met my DiL and, of course, the child was going to take a while to get to know my DiL (daddy's new girlfriend in her eyes and taking the place of her mummy) They had been divorced for 2 years by then and the DiL was not part of the split.
Has anyone else come across this situation. He says that when they are older he will let them know. I have pictures of my DGC (who we do not see) up in my lounge when the little one asked who they were I just said they are -and their names - not their relationship. It is so sad. I can see a Jeremy Kyle situation in the future.
