Dear New Potential Family Member,
While my family and I may seem to be accepting, friendly and supportive right now, in order for things to progress and for you to be invited to truly become a part of our family, I/we need you to understand a few things:
I/we will not accept anything less than 110% being given to this relationship.
I/we insist that there be complete honesty with regards to your intentions now and in the future and if they should change.
I/we insist in seeing proof that you have life goals that complement those of our family member and can help with the financial aspect in reaching those goals as agreed upon.
I/we insist that you be a strong individual who is happy with who you are and can allow our family member to be the same.
I/we insist that you disclose any unusual family history or secrets prior to a lifelong commitment being made.
I/we require you to be able to detach from your family of origin appropriately and make our family member #1 in your life.
I/we do not expect you to be perfect, but we do expect you to do your best every day with whatever the task at hand may be.
I/we need to know what your spiritual, financial, relationship and family goals are before this commitment can be made.
Me and my Family
These are just a few of the things that should be discussed, prior to making that commitment. It saves much heartache later on down the road if you know these things now. If you need help in discussing this information with a potential new family member, contact me and I can help guide you through the process. Preparation now = better chance of happiness later.
Thank you for taking the time to look at the topic of inviting a new family member into your family circle....From The Positive Perspective.
