He Cut Me Out

My beautiful nephew Arny was born in 1990. I was in the process of moving to Florida at the time. I put off my move 2 or 3 days so that I could be there when he was brought home for the first time.

His mom and dad brought him home and I was there with other family members to see my new nephew and wish my family well. Around 10 years later my brother was showing family movies. He put the tape in of Arny's first trip home from the hospital. I had been cut out of it completely. Everyone else who was there was on it. Not me.

It was one of the most hurtful things my brother ever did to me. I couldn't say anything to him about it because I didn't want to raise a stink in front of my niece and nephew.

I left.
