My ex-husband’s presumptuous new wife claimed all of my daughter’s birthday gifts for her own child

At Joy’s tenth birthday party, Tina hopes to create lasting memories with friends and family, but an unexpected guest’s demands threaten to overshadow the celebrations. Can Tina navigate this delicate situation and preserve her daughter’s special day?

Life has a way of surprising us when we least expect it and the same happened to me. I’m Tina, by the way, soaking up the sun in California now, but my story begins in India. I’m here to share my life’s roller coaster, which has had its ups and downs.

About nine years ago, my friends set me up on a blind date. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, right? But as luck would have it, I met Barun.

He was everything I could have dreamed of in a partner—loving, caring, and incredibly supportive of my ambitions. We clicked instantly; it felt like we had known each other forever.

Soon, we got married, diving headfirst into our new life together. We had four amazing years together, the happiest of my life. We shared dreams and laughter, and eventually welcomed our daughter, Joy.


We named her Joy, and she was exactly that—our little bundle of joy. She filled our lives with love and, well, more joy than I ever thought possible. But, as they say, all good things must end.

One day, Barun and I suddenly found ourselves in a whirlwind of disagreements. The kind you read about in novels or see in movies, where everything just… collapses.

Eventually, we realized we just couldn’t bridge our differences. It was heartbreaking, but we decided to part ways. Despite the turmoil, we managed to keep things amicable for Joy’s sake, agreeing that she would live with me.

Life after the divorce brought new challenges and changes. I landed a fantastic job in California. It was a fresh start for me and Joy, a chance to build new dreams in a new place. My employer was incredibly supportive, sponsoring both me and my daughter to start our new life in the U.S.

Settling down abroad was a big move, but it felt right. It was our new beginning, just the two of us, and I was ready to make the most of it.

Life in California was a breeze compared to the stormy days back home. I had a steady job and a close-knit circle of friends. Although I was a single mom, I never really felt the void of a partner.
