Sorry, folks, for the delay in responding. I've spent an anxious day in the dark, as Tshwane City Council can't keep the lights on, and this is my third power-cut this year.
I have known it happen, that with parents who have lost many pregnancies / young children, they get scared to love each child, for fear of yet again losing them. But they should of course re-adjust to the happy even of a child living. And, also, as you say, a sickly child like your sister needs a lot of attention, and care, and they may unwittingly neglect the other child. Most unfortunate.
You've made the right decision --- respond by making sure that you don't repeat the mistakes they made. And maybe discuss it with them, calmly, some time.
