Our expert says:
Oh, the awful things that get done in the name of "blood" or "blood relations" !
There is no value whatever in children knowing any or all of their relatives, unless those relatives, and relationships with them, are at least benign, if possible nurturing. Mere relationship, without true caring, is really of no recognizeable value.
And where, like the mother you describe, she is cruel, unforgiving and abusive, they can only benefit from not knowing her.
You tried to make things work with her - and the failure of that mission was her fault, not yours - and should feel no guilt or worry about giving up that fruitless attempt and moving on with a life that sounds as though it will be enhanced by her absence.
