Dividing families doesn't just affect the primary players...it's got a pervasive trickle-down effect that continues for generations.
Yes, that's my greatest fear. My sibs and I have 8 children among us. Four of us are parents - Hart and one other sister were not. Of the four of us with kids, 3 are banned. Our kids all know their cousins, but my other brother's kids have been raised to think they had none on his father's side. I wrote and suggested recently (maybe about a year and a half ago) that my brother and sister-in-law let their kids know their cousins, but they rebuffed that. I sent them a picture of all the cousins at Winnipeg Beach (from the family reunion - I guess the Outcast Family Reunion - this past summer) just a couple of months ago. They didn't write back.

It's beyond my understanding why people would cut off family and even if you accept the premise that the banned people did something to deserve it (which I don't) what could their children have possibly done?
I'm sorry...The only thing I can say is that secrets like that never stay secret forever....
