Imagine planning a joyous birthday party for your 7-year-old, only to have the excitement dampened by a relative's constant tales of woe. This was the reality for one mom, who decided to take a stand against her sister's habit of turning every family gathering into a somber occasion. She wanted her son's party to be a celebration, not a pity party. But when she asked her sister to keep the talk of her adopted daughter's health problems to a minimum, the request sparked a family feud. 🎈😮
