A mother is at odds with her adopted daughter who has been pushing her and her family to the side in order to spend more time with her biological family. However, when the daughter's husband falls seriously ill and requires a costly LVAD implant, she turns to her mother for help. The mother refuses to sell the family's land to pay for the procedure, leading to a huge argument and a rift in their relationship. While the daughter accuses her mother of being unsupportive and only caring about the money, the mother feels hurt and unappreciated by her daughter's actions. Despite her husband's suggestion to help out now and settle the conflict later, the mother is hesitant, feeling that she is not obligated to give such a large sum of money. The situation is complicated by the daughter's previous behavior and the mother's resentment towards her daughter's biological family. Read on for the comments and reactions to this family drama.
