My SS is 7 years old now. We have bonded so much in the past two years. I met him when he was 3 years old.
His Bio mom decided to move states Jan 2021. She chose not to fight for custody. She sees my SS for 6 weeks in the summer. She was supposed to have him in Nov 2021 for thanksgiving but she didnt. She is pregnant and having a second child with her new husband. I believe is she due April 2022 or May 2022. I figured maybe she didnt want to travel now that she is pregnant and financially. Well my husband asked her to start sending $$ in sep 2021. She did for Sep, Oct, and Nov. Then she has stopped. His birthday was in Feb and she said she didnt have money to send him a present. She doesn't ask for him either. Calls once a week maybe. Ever since he came back in Aug 2021 from visiting her she has only asked me twice about him. One pic of him in his halloween costume and a few weeks ago to send a pic again. I used to send her updates and pictures before. But I stopped because when I needed to talk to her she would say she was busy. So I figured I was going to let her ask about her son instead of me trying to reach out to her. Sometimes I feel guilty not giving her any updates. But I think it should be up to her?
She was also supposed to have him for spring break. Yet, I know he told my SS she will see him in the summer. I didn't even ask if she was going to have him over for spring break. For thanksgiving i had to ask her two weeks before because she had said yes she was going to pick him up but didnt. I hate how inconsistent she is. She is not good at keeping her word. Very frustrating!
