I wrote back in March about family reconnecting. At that time, the family in question sent messages back and forth on Facebook about an impending trip back to South Africa and how wonderful it will be to meet up. They would be staying with friends quite near to where we live. Like 5 minutes away by car.
I was a bit sceptical still but Himself was looking forward to seeing family members we'd last seen 8 years ago.
Well, status update this morning from the family is that they are back at home. They never called or contacted us in any way to get together like they kept saying they would and wanted to.
Makes me sad.
