What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state? MD My brother died 3 years ago and left 2 small children behind that are being raised by his wife. She has decided that my family can not see the children. She will not allow phone contact, letters or visitation. I am not as concerned about not seeing the children as I am my parent's not seeing them. Both of my brother's died. These two children are the only grandchildren they have and the only connection any of my family has to my brother. My sister-in-law is downright mean when it comes to my family. She has sworn at us and said the most hateful and hurtful things. My father is 76 years old and recently had quadruple bi-pass. I want my parents to know their grandchildren before they are no longer around. The kids are now 8 & 9 years old. While my brother was alive, my parents would see them on a weekly basis. After he died, they got to see them on a monthly basis. Now, they have not been able to see them for 7 months and have not been allowed to call at all. She will not allow the kids to answer the phone and she will also not answer it - or if she does, she hangs up. We do not believe that letters get to the kids. Any help would be great! Don't really know where to go or how to pursue this. There is a lot more information on this. but don't know how much detail to put in here.
