My brother is 7 years older than me, and we have different dads. We are German, but our mom and I moved to the states when I was 16 months old, and my brother stayed with his dad. My whole time growing up I was told over and over that my brother did not want to stay with us, that he wanted to stay with his family in Germany. It hurt...to think that my brother did not love me enough to be here. Now that we are talking (almost a year now) I am finding out that he DID want to be here, but that every time he asked to come live here my mom made excuses why he could not come. He came to visit when he was 14 (I was 7) for the summer, and he said that he cried and asked mom if he could stay, and all she did was cry and tell him that he had to go home.
All of my life my parents lied, and I had resentment toward a brother that I now love very much.
How do I confront my mother with her lies about my brother?
