Woman calls out sister for not supporting adopted children financially 🤯

In a heart-wrenching story, a woman opens up about her sister's neglectful behaviour towards her own children. Despite abandoning her first two children at birth and 9 months old respectively, and having no contact with them while they were growing up, the sister suddenly took an interest in the children when they were adopted by her other sister. However, her interest waned when she was asked to pay child support. The woman is now upset that her sister refers to the children as "our kids" despite not contributing to their upbringing financially or emotionally. Is she right to be angry? Or should she apologize for calling out her sister's behaviour? Read on to find out what others have to say about this family feud.
