Mom: Hi, how are you, my beautiful daughter? I miss you so much. I want to see you soon. Are you single? I have a nice man with 3 years his brother is here from turkey. I love you so much <3

Mom: My boyfriend’s brother is looking for a wife. Happy Thanksgiving my princess love you with all my heart <3

Me: Was your phone taken?? This is so weird, no I will not be your boyfriend’s brother’s wife or girlfriend, since I already have a partner. And it’d just be double weird to be your sister-in-law. Also happy Thanksgiving love and miss u too 🙂

Me: You know I have a boyfriend, did you forget?

Mom: Ok i love you so much :* <3”

I’m 22 but have been in foster care since I was 6. She lost custody of me and was never able to get it back because of multiple failed drug tests and missing visits when I was growing up. I cut contact with her April of last year but this past Thanksgiving (Canada Thanksgiving- so mid-October) she messaged me this. I love and hate her equally and I haven’t seen her in person in over 5 years. She knows I have a partner so this idea was just bizarre. Should also note that she was drunk when she texted this. Drunk and sad. —the-author-0
