Following an on going saga regarding the EPA and the way in which my mothers solicitor is dealing with her 'best interests' I bit the bullet and thanks to the support here, contacted the Public Guardianship Office to express my concerns about how my mothers affairs were being handled. I really want to share this with you because I am absolutely at a loss for words! The PGO requested a reply from the solicitor following receipt of my letter. Would you believe that the solicitor has responded referring to me as the 'adopted' daughter and makes several references to the fact!!!! I am absolutely scandalised because the insinuation there is horrendous! The inference is that I am purely a gold digger, an unknown quantity and certainly not a true member of the family! It is absolutely AWFUL. Has anyone else had similar experiences? I wonder if they would similarly discriminate if I was 'a one legged blonde with a parrot on my shoulder' ??!! Sorry - I have to make light of it because it hurts so much. Mum would be absolutley horrified. Do they not realise that because I was lucky enough to be adopted by my Mum that, that in itself makes her so, so important to me and the fear of losing her so can't face it, awful? I need some support on this one.....please respond.
