I didn't speak to my sister for years. I am really still not sure the exact cause for our split, and now that we are talking, I've decided not to care anymore. It was ten long years of radio silence, but it ended almost eight years ago. I've been able to meet her children and watch them grow. Things got better, but if you'd told me that in 1996 or so, I would have never believed you. Things change and then things change.
But at the time, my heart was broken, and now, watching my sons go through a hard time, I feel the same way.
Today I'm blogging about it at parentdish.com.

By the way, Gina Misiroglu of Red Room put me in touch with the parentdish people, which is one of the great ways in which she's bringing traffic to Red Room and getting attention for Red Room's authors.
