My biological mother decided she didn't want any kind of a relationship with my brother and I when I was 18. I struggled for many years coming to terms with this, but when I realized I could survive without her, and be happy to have the one great parent I do have (my dad), I became a much happier person. Try to get to that place, and hopefully they will start doing a better job. If not, you know you tried, and that's all you can do.
Big hug sweetie...

I have a similar situation-- I've only spoken to my mother once on the phone in my entire life. She has had numerous opportunities to be included in my life, but has chosen not to. I always thought it was about me--- that she didn't feel strongly enough about me to even make an effort. After a conversation with my uncle, I realized it was about her--- she felt so much guilt and pain about the past that she couldn't risk having to touch those feelings, much less deal with them. And I am the reminder of those feelings.
