Wonder if anybody could give me some input.
I am the eldest of 4, 2 natural sisters and an adopted brother.
Over the years there have been various times when my brother has decided he didn't want to be part of the family and had cut contact. Things seemed to get better a few years ago until we lost my mum. Not long after that a fall out happened with my brother after he asked for money from my dad which he could not afford to give him, things became very upsetting and in the end my sister received a message from him saying he did not want to know us and as far as he is concerned he has no dad and no sisters.
Today is my brother's birthday and I have felt awful that I have not contacted him to say happy birthday even though he has not had contact with any of us since this happened - my sister's say he made his feelings known and to contact him could cause the whole thing to start again and dad is elderly and doesn't need the worry but I still feel like a horrible person for not Acknowledging his birthday.
