A Mother's Heartbreak: Abandoned, Blamed, and Betrayed 💔

In a tale that tugs at the heartstrings, a mother recounts her struggle with her son's congenital heart defect, her husband's abandonment, and the subsequent blame she faced after her son's death. Despite her tireless efforts to care for her son, her ex-husband accused her of being heartless for not informing him of their son's passing. The cruel irony? He had left them during their most trying times. Even more shocking, her own father sided with her ex. Amidst her grief, she found herself defending her actions to those who should have been her support system. Let's see what the internet thinks of this heart-wrenching situation...💭

"NTA a million times! He abandoned his sick son because he didn't want to take care of him. He abandoned his wife, leaving the entire weight of taking care of said sick son on her shoulders, all because the attention was not on him. He got remarried and cut off all contact with his sick son. He didn't even care enough to pass on his number when he changed it. He was NOT a good father or husband. He had come storming in probably because his ego was bruised when he was told about his son. And he's even making your son's death all about him. Show these comments to your ex and your dad, though I think only the latter will apologize." 😡

Ex's anger may be due to guilt. NTA, stay strong 💪


NTA. Cut contact with him AND your father. You did NOTHING wrong! Anyone who tries to say 'well he's just...' can be met with a ✋🏼. He cemented his decision when he changed his number.
