Was I wrong to say this?

My mother and I don't talk anymore since about 2 years ago when my sister asked to borrow $15,000 dollars and my husband and I refused to give it to her. My sister turned my whole family against me, fine I've dealt with it. About a week ago, my sister emailed me the following. I don't talk to any member of my family anymore and got this:

Nic-

I heard your moving....can we have the address? I want to make sure we can send our condolence cards to you when your twins come out all retarted and stupid since your so fucking old and having TWO babies! God what a whore. Attention seeker sound familar??? Well hopefully you don't get hit by a semi on your way to the new house.....Oh by the way, Hank and I are expecting our 2nd child. NIce timing with your  babies. 

Yeah, my sister is a peach. I rarely even listen to this anymore and it doesn't fase me, I just make sure I pray hard to God that he protects me and my family. So if this wasn't enough, my mom texted me, yes TEXTED me today.:

Look, your sister is extremely hurt that you are pregnant again. You know she has had problems getting pregnant. She doesn't need you parading around your pregnant. Thanks for making sure we knew you were pregnant....we haven't even met our latest granddaughter and now you have two more coming. We are officially not family anymore. 

This one actually got to me, so I texted her back;

We have never been family. I can not control what Mark and I do with our family. God has blessed me with the most amazing kids. There is a reason you have never met your latest grandchildren, and that is because I don't want them around people who want the worst for them. We are moving in June and changing our numbers. You all have no right to contact me or my family ever. If I get another harrasing email from Liz or you I will call the police and file reports against you. The fact that Liz has emailed me saying she hopes there is things wrong with my children is WRONG! I hope she has a healthy and happy pregnancy. 

Was I wrong to reply to my mom? There was no other reply today. Thank god!

You replied fine.. (way better than I would) it's so sad to hear how 'families 'can be. I also have a family w/ issues similar or worse.. I still have trouble accepting my family's ways, it hurts. But, my kids come first so forget them.. -hugs- GL w/ your baby & just enjoy your own little family.. :) Lo que sera, sera..

I am so very sorry about your family. I can't see how anyone with fertility issues would wish ill will on someone else pregnant. She's treading on a thin line. Karma is a itch... I think you handled it A LOT better than a lot of people. I would have had their behinds on Judge XYZ so fast! Just to show the world how horrible they are! Money/ greed did this to them & I can honestly see why you would wash your hands of that BS.

BTW Good call on keeping your children away. They are a part of you and if they would treat you this way, I can't see them treating your children too kind either. With that being said...phuck them. :-\ You have one life to live and I know you know better than allowing them to dictate it.

Woah.. You weren't wrong at all. Your Sister sounds like a Winner. She shouldn't go saying that about Children---REALLY bad Karma with her being Pregnant as well.

It's an old saying but " you can pick your friends but you can't pick your family" .  Someimes you just get born into the wrong one.  Sorry your sibling and parent are such B***** but I would do the same, change your numbers and move with no forwarding, maybe even change emails or at least block them into junk mail.   Be happy you have your own family to concentrate on and leave the others in the past

Wow! That's some ish! I would chafe my number now. Dont let them stress you into any complications with your pregnancy. I would tell people I was a test tube baby before claiming them people.
You are better than them and are creating better people then they can ever imagine being. Good luck!

This makes me so glad my family and siblings would never talk or act like this. My mom would beat us if we behaved that way towards each other. I would be blocking them all. My dh would kill someone for talking like that to me.
