Was He Wrong for Pretending Not to Recognize His Parents When They Tried to Reconnect?

A Reddit user shares his story of being raised by his aunt and uncle after his parents abandoned him and his reaction after they tried to come back into his life.

Mommy and Daddy Issues

The original poster (OP) explained that they were raised by their aunt and uncle.

Their older sister had developed a pretty serious illness when OP was six years old and their parents found that they could not take care of both of them.

They left OP at their grandparents’ house, and their uncle took them in after that.

Their parents never explained what was happening, they just told them they were going to visit their grandma for a while and never came back.

Both their uncle and his grandparents were unhappy with what OP’s parents had done.

OP said that after that, they only saw their parents about five times and then not at all for the last nine years.
