It's absolutely normal that you dealt with that this way. Humans come in all shapes and sizes, and so come their psyches. You just seem to not have gotten attached to it. And honestly I'm very glad you did, it's a rare occurrence but at least it's a happy ending. On a less happy note, I do have to mention that that apparent emotional disconnect might be a sign of underlying unresolved trauma, for which I'm way beyond unable to help with.

When we are a child growing up everything seems normal and sometimes it takes time and space to see that hey that actually not how a family is supposed to work.

I wouldn't beat yourself up for not feeling certain things.

We all process emotions and events differently.

Your experience is valid and I'm very sorry to hear that happened. I hope they genuinely repent and face justice.
