On this day 16 years ago my mum died from an asthma attack. I was 11. My sister was 8 and my baby brother was almost 2.
My dad remarried and I have always got on great with my stepmum. We are best friends and she is the person I talked to most about my mum. A few years ago my dad, stepmum and younger siblings moved to America. I stayed behind, got married and now have 2 beautiful children.
My dad and stepmum are now in the middle of a messy divorce. My brother and sister no longer talk to my setpmum and I hardly talk to my dad. The family has been split down the middle.
As more time passes I feel like I remember less and less about my mum. It has become harder to talk to my family about it as I don't speak to them very often, and when I do they are so wound up about the divorce thats all they talk about.

Sorry for the rambling, I just needed to write something down. I miss mum so much and feel like I have noone to share my feelings with.

what a Shame they moved so far away and then split up
Could you try to reconnect with your dad & siblings if it would make you feel better?
