I was told that it was just going to be a sight-seeing trip and that it would be extremely difficult for me as my vision is very poor. I was told specifically ahead of time that "it wasn't like they were going to visit family or anything." While I'm sure I would have wished I was here if I had gone, I still feel left out. I guess I have no one to blame, but me since I didn't go. I wouldn't have been able to keep up with all the hiking and all. It would also have been very expensive for me. Between the plane ticket, hotel room, etc.


Sorry this happened, Jenny. I wonder...is there an alternative way for you to meet this person? You would have to have contact information, of course, but if you did could you possibly invite them to your area, maybe do lunch or something? That way you could meet them on YOUR terms, without outside interference or anyone withholding information.

Just a thought. I hope you can meet them, someway.

I'm sorry they didn't include you, at least they were nice about and said they thought the constant walking was too rough for you. I know a 7 year old child who wanted to go with her a parent of hers and was blunty told. "I don't want you!" Can you imagine how that 7 year old felt? At leat your family was a lot nicer than that 7-year old parent was. Maybe you can meet that member of the family someday on your own terms.

I know how that 7-year-old feels. When I was 8-years-old my grandmother told me that "she didn't want anything to do with me because I have a vision problem and she can't accept that." I think that's pretty blunt.

Btw, it wasn't until they were already on their vacation that I found out that they were visiting with my aunt, who I've never met and didn't know about.

I am so sorry Jenny. That has to be about the meanest thing that I've ever read. There is just no excuse for it.
