We came back early fromt he beach yesterday.  It was raining and Brian wasn't feeling great (even after the boys all tried to cuddle with him.).  After we got home the weather  changed at it was warm and summy so Brian decided to have a cook out and invite his Dad (since he was gone last weekend for father's day).  FIL came straight from work.  We were all having a good time when MIL showed up.  MIL starts to talk to Nathanial. He says, "Why you know like Abigail? You no like sissy I no like you." and walked away and clung to Brian. I tried to tell him that wasn't nice. (okay I really could have tried harder) Brian looked at her as asked what she was doing there and before she could answer told her to leave.  She actually started to cry! UGH!!  I almost feel bad for her, but at the same time I just want her to go away.  I feel bad for FIL he's cought between his wife and his only child.

 There's a long back stroy,  but my MIL was fine before we adopted our daughter, now she's refusing to accept her as our daughter.

Poor Nathaniel. He really told her though. I don't blame you. People like that are terrible. How can you not accept a child.

 She was fine when I had our boys, it's just Abigail she refuses to accept.  Nathanial just turned 3 in April.

That's really hard, but it must be pretty freaking obvious if your 3 year old is picking up on it.

 She has said that she doesn't accept Abigail (and the boys could hear her), plus she's never held or interacted with Abigail like she did/does with the boys.  At Chrsitmas she came to the house with a ton of toys for the boys but not s single thing for Abigail. (after we told her not to).

That is awful!  She is going to really regret making that choice.

I think that it's good that your son spoke up. Silly woman doesn't know what she is missing!
