Merry Christmas, I still hate you!

My aunt, aka former guardian and current guardian of my 4 youngest siblings has decided that I can no longer have contact with them and place a no-contact order on me because I'm "mentally unstable and a danger" to them... She is also telling their case workers to find them another home because she "can't handle them anymore because they're too difficult."
And of course I can't file for custody or guardianship as was my original plan because I don't have a job yet and also the stupid stunt she just pulled has made it virtually impossible to get a job let alone have my siblings handed over to me. Does she know they're going to be split up again? Does she know the foster system there is going to eat them alive? Does she even care? Did she ever?

Is that enough justification to still hate her?
