What to do about a legal guardian's misuse of funds?

Question Details:

My great-uncle raised me as his own but passed away when I was 12, 18 years ago. He never legally adopted me but left money 30k for me when he died. His new young wife was appointment my legal guardian and raised me the remainder of my childhood. I never saw any of the money my "dad" left for me. How do I go about proving the money was never spent on me? Do I have an option to sue her? I was too young at the time to realize this was going on.
