My ex-bff (who did the whole backstab thing) wrote me Thing is it really really really hurt me when she and I got into the fight, we had been bffs for years, and she knew so much about me, including where to strike to make it hurt. She turned ALL (and I mean ALL) of my friends against me. I dropped out midyear and I was busy settling in my Hubbys house so I did not contact anyone for like a week, and when I got back in touch with my old "Friends" they were ALL against me. So I was basically friendless. I just started making NEW friends, and I was starting to try to forget my old friendships, ESP. with this particular girl, who I was more hurt than angry with. And here it is out of the blue she's all writing me. SO do I write back?!?!
I wouldn't respond to that.... or if I did, I might say something like,
"Thanks for your letter of congratulations. Yes, having a family is a wonderful and fulfilling thing. I hope that one day you will be able to experience the same amount of joy and happiness that I do on a daily basis. Good Luck to you."
Keep it short and sweet, then wash your hands of her.

I agree with anon 3:02, keep the note short & simple. She obviously is not interested in your friendship, and the way I read it was a couple of hurtful digs ("receiving a letter from who you thought hated you". She's spiteful, I think you're better off without her. Embrace your new life and friends and like anon said, wash your hands of her. Congrats on the baby & marriage! :o)
