Love this, it made me think of lots of things I hadn’t before.
So glad that you enjoyed this. We are setting a date for updating our papers. It’s so important.
Step-heroes! I love that!
Thanks for all the food for thought. Something I have been thinking about for sometime. Thanks for those great resources.
You are welcome, Patricia. It made me realize that we need to update some of our paperwork as well.
I was surprise to find out you were originally from Québec, Claudette. I enjoy when you share that part of you as I am from there 🙂
This is so important and complex in stepfamilies. We spent a lot of time thinking through how to protect our kids and stepkids from probate and end-of-life dramas. Fortunately, we have a knowledgeable financial planner and an attorney who listened carefully to our intents to honor and include both “sets” of kids. We took time to have discussions with our kids about these decisions and considered their concerns. The outcome has been positive. Gratefully they are willing to work together and have positive adult relationships with their siblings and step-siblings.
