A young woman stirred outrage on Reddit after she told her mother to give her sister’s daughter back to her. The backstory that follows is full of twists, turns, and plenty of family drama.
They’re Almost the Same
OP is an 18-year-old woman who recently graduated from high school.
She also has a twin sister.
She Had a Plan
OP’s sister has had a boyfriend since they were freshmen in high school.
He comes from a well-off family who had a ready-made career lined up and waiting for him when he graduated.
They Had a Bright Future
Both the boyfriend and OP’s sister have always been responsible kids, and their future seemed bright to everyone who knew them.
They Shocked Everyone
It was quite a shock when OP’s sister turned up pregnant during their senior year.
Both she and her boyfriend swore they were very careful with protection.
She Believes Them
OP tends to believe them, but it doesn’t really matter at this point.
They Were Good Parents
OP’s sister finished her senior year online, and then the baby was born right after graduation.
The young couple were very caring and responsible parents right from the start.
They Had to Move Away
As expected, OP’s sister’s boyfriend started his new job not long after graduation.
The only drawback was that it was in a town 4 hours away.
Mom Was Happy to Help
So the new parents packed up their belongings and moved away to start their new life.
OP’s mom agreed to watch the baby for a short time while her daughter and the boyfriend got settled.
She Was Nesting
It took OP’s sister about two weeks to get settled into her new place.
During that time, the sisters would video call nearly every day, and the new mother was busy getting the baby’s nursery ready.
She Wanted Her Baby Back
She missed her baby more and more each day, and OP was happy that her sister would be reunited with her child soon.
But There Was Trouble Brewing
The trouble started when OP’s sister called their mom to arrange a time to pick up the baby.
Mom Said She Was a Gold Digger
OP’s mom told her sister that she was nothing but a gold digger and had abandoned her baby.
She was not going to let her have the child.
She Was Keeping the Baby
Then the baby’s father called OP’s mom, and she told him the same thing – she wasn’t giving the baby back.
She Would Call the Cops
The phone calls went back and forth for more than a week, and tensions escalated with each call.
Finally, OP’s sister told her mom that she’d get the cops involved if she had to.
They Had a Special Bond
But OP’s mom didn’t seem to care and said that she had a special bond with her granddaughter.
The Time Had Come
OP tried to talk some sense into her mom and pointed out that the older lady had agreed to watch her sister’s baby for a short time while she moved.
But that time was over.
She Begged Her to Reconsider
Her mom just continued to say that she had a special bond with the child, though, and that she would never give her up.
OP begged her to reconsider and told her that her sister would get a lawyer if she had to.
She Needed to Butt Out
Finally, OP’s mom told her to butt out because it wasn’t any of her business.
It’s Not Her Business
OP kind of agrees with that, since the baby is not hers. The fight is really between her mom and her sister.
She Sees Trouble Ahead
But OP still feels like her mom is way off base, and she thinks there is big trouble ahead if mom doesn’t back down.
Her Mom Is in Big Trouble
Redditors think that it definitely is OP’s business, since it involves her mom, sister, and niece, and since she still lives at home.
And most commenters agree with OP that her mom is heading for big trouble if she doesn’t let her daughter come and take her baby without a struggle.
