🙋‍♂️ Hey there, Facebook fam! I've got a doozy of a story for you today. 😳 Imagine losing your mom just days after being born, and then your dad whisks you away to start a new life with a new mom. 🏃‍♂️💔 But wait, there's more! Your biological family is left behind, and contact is limited to just once a year. 😢 As I grew up, I started to reconnect with them, but my parents weren't too thrilled about it. 😠 Now, I'm caught in the middle of this emotional tug-of-war, and I've got a tough question for my parents. 🤔 Buckle up, because this story is about to get intense! 🔥

Alright, Facebook fam, here's the tea. 🍵 I've been trying to get my parents to put themselves in my biological mom's family's shoes. Like, how would they feel if they died and their only child was kept away from them? 😢 But they just won't answer the dang question! 😤 So, I hit them with the silent treatment. 🙊 No talking until they give me a straight answer. My siblings are starting to see where I'm coming from, but my parents are still being stubborn. 😠 They want to talk about everything BUT the question at hand. 🙄 Can you believe it? Let's see what the internet has to say about this emotional rollercoaster. 🎢
