My 36-year-old son has wealth and a gorgeous brick home. He and his partner each have a home office. They have been engaged for more than a year and have been dating for about two years. His daughter is seven years old, and she is black. I have the deepest love for her daughter Chloe, and our family is not in the least racist.
I once visited with his younger brother to look at their Christmas tree when I used to live about five minutes away. My son refused to let us in and turned both of us away. Since it was my first time, I didn’t give it much thought.
Even when I brought my brother, his uncle, along, we were never allowed inside when I dropped things off or just stopped by to say hello. I won’t visit there again because this has happened there so frequently. He has even specifically instructed me not to.
Since there was a significant breakdown in contact, I have now moved to a new home more than 45 minutes away. My youngest son and I now reside in my hometown after moving there.
