Here is the letter written to her father by my grand-daughter. You will see in the next to last paragraph that she quotes her sibling's letter with the date.. It was basically telling about her school holidays and was included with her sister's thank-you letter for a birthday gift.
"I am writing to you to ask for you to consider contacting me to arrange for me to have regular contact and visits with Jazmine and Ashleigh as we have struggled to come to an agreement since August last year.
As I am sure you can remember, we stopped having contact after the time you were all supposed to come down to stay in Exeter. Unfortunately, I had an important appointment at the hospital at 9am that day, and therefore couldn’t spend the day with you all due to plans made for you all to go to the zoo. After an angry telephone call from you, after I mentioned that the reason you were supposed to be coming down was to spend time with me, I decided that I could no longer maintain a relationship with you. I was struggling a lot with mental health due to a few reasons and had actually been signed off work. None of that meant I didn’t want contact with my sisters, but it seemed that unless I had a relationship with you and Tam, I cannot see Jazmine and Ashleigh.
I have attempted to regain contact with them through you a few times since august 2013 to no avail. After receiving a letter from Ashleigh on 09/09/14, ending with “I really miss you and want to come back and see you” I think it is time that we sorted something out so that I can be a sister to them again.
I realise that me and you will never be able to regain a relationship for many reasons and past issues, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t be a good and reliable sister to Jazmine and Ashleigh and be a positive part of their lives. I am happy to see them at ange’s with her there or someone else in the family. I don’t think coming to the house is a good idea and think that contact in calm environments that everyone is happy with is the best way forward. Living in Exeter, I won’t be able to see them every week but I can come up as often as I can and keep in contact via writing letters.
Please consider this and let me know via letter or email so that we can come to an agreement.
Hope this helps. I think the mental health issues she mentions (agoraphobia and panic attacks) are caused by the stress she's been under most of her life. She tries very hard to carry on, but damage has been done, I fear. She is a little better now.
