New Member Forced to Sell

Hi everyone. My name is AnnMarie. I'm a 50 year old female from a small community in Alabama. 26 years ago my husband and I built on 2 acres of land on a 160 acre farm belonging to my mother in law. My children and I have always thought one day the land would be sub-divided between my husband and his siblings and we'd live here with them building here also. However, his siblings have decided they can make more money selling the land as a whole and refuse to sub-divide which will leave us and one other sibling having our land taken away and us having to live on our 2 acres among a future housing development. Granted the sell of the land would be a lot of money, but I'd rather have my land for my children to build on one day. Of course the ones wanting to sell have never wanted to live on this land and don't. Is there anything we can do? Are we just at their mercy and have to sell? I appreciate any feed back. Thanks,
