So my bitch of a sil did it.
She wanted to divorce my brother earlier this year, but was unable to since she is from Germany and they were in California. She would have been screwed. She wanted to take their boys and leave, but pretended to mend their relationship.
Her grandfather died and my bro bent over backwards to get her and the boys back to germany, while he remained behind. (He's army.) She was supposed to be gone only 10 days.
A week into it, not even actually, he announced that she'd stay there. He'd join them in February when he is redeployed to Germany.
I had a bad, bad feeling. She has never acknowled my nephews as being American. She insists they are german only. Now she has them in Germany, and is divorcing my brother.
I was already cut out of the boys' lives. Now I know for sure they will never know me. Breaks my heart.
My bro is no saint, but I know she will do everything she can to make sure he doesn't see his sons.
