I was sexually abused by my step father for years, even after my mother found out she chose to stay with him. I haven't seen her in almost two years because I told her that if she wants to be with him that she won't see me or my children. This past Friday she passed away unexpectedly, my abuser passed away last December and I was hoping to patch up my relationship with her. Now it's too late. At the calling hours and funeral all I felt was disappointment because she chose to be with him and she never realized how much she was missing out on. Her sisters and my step sister know what happened and still choose to act as if nothing happeded! It hurts me very much and I don't associate with them very often. I'm sad that she died without telling me she was sorry for her poor choices and not being able to have a relationship with her. Even if she had lived I probably wouldn't have gotten an apology, just wishful thinking I guess. Has anyone been through similar situations? I would like to have some feedback on this topic.
