A man’s father passed away in a road accident, and his wife died soon after. He took in his younger siblings, but he refused to look after the daughter of his father’s wife, which made his father’s in-laws incredibly angry.

Last year, the man’s father and his wife passed away after being involved in a road accident. The man, who is 22 years old, had no contact with his father in the final few years of his life. When the accident happened, he took in his younger siblings, a 16-year-old sister and a 15-year-old brother.

The man’s biological mother passed away when his brother was only four years old. His stepmother, the wife of his father, had a daughter, although the man “does not know exactly how old she was.” He did know, however, that she was younger than 10. She doesn’t know her father, and her aunt did not want her. So his father’s in-laws took her in.

Initially, his father’s in-laws mentioned his name to CPS, asking if he would take in his stepsister. He refused the request as, after speaking with his siblings, they had “no interest in remaining part of her life.” Throughout the past few years, they have spent more time with the man than their father anyway, when they were not in school.

“Ever since my father’s wife died, her parents have been contacting me,” he said. “They wanted me to take their granddaughter; they wouldn’t take no for an answer. They tried to get my siblings to ask for us to have her. They were promptly blocked from all their accounts and later mine.”

Despite his efforts to make them stop, the emails continued. He eventually found out that they had taken the man’s number from his father’s phone and were making contact through that.

The man dealt with this for as long as he could, making multiple attempts to stop them, but finally snapped under the pressure. He reached out to CPS, telling the case worker that his father’s in-laws were trying to “pawn their granddaughter off” on him. He explained that he was not interested but they had refused to listen.

The family of his father’s wife was outraged at this. He was well aware that the continued phone calls and messages are from them, perhaps using burner phones. They called the man evil, telling him that they were ignoring their sister, even though there was no biological relationship and his father never adopted her.

The family persisted, arguing that their granddaughter misses her siblings and belongs with them, calling him “nasty” for trying to stop her from being with the people who care for her.

Was he right?

The man now wonders if he should have just continued ignoring their attempts to contact him, in spite of their feeling that they’re only “looking out for their granddaughter.”

The internet responded

One commenter noted, “They’re harassing you. Like, within the legal definition of harassment, and you could consider a restraining order at this point.”

Another person said, “It seems likely that the girl is not safe with them and that CPS should be involved.”
