Ed’s Family

I got an e-mail from my ex-mother-in-law last night, she was happy with the Christmas gifts from my son and sent her love.  In the mail I got a Christmas card from my ex-sister in law and a super cute picture of my niece.  I talked to my ex-step father in law on the phone and he was grateful for the efforts to keep them involved in my son’s life. 

Divorce and addiction are both sad, there is no denying it.  But what about losing the relationships with your ex’s family?  Thank God my new husband is understanding and doesn’t blame them for the failure of my first marriage but how close or detached should I be from these people?  I want them to know that I’m not angry with them but that I still cannot forgive the terrible, cruel and heartless things that their “blood” relative did to me.  He’s hurt them all badly now too so maybe that is our continuing bond.  I’m just not sure where to go with these relationships.
