I have been lucky enough to marry into a lovely, kind, close knit family. Whatever shock they might have felt at their son announcing he was marrying someone with three children has been well-masked. They have been unfailingly kind and gracious and welcoming to me from day one, and have included the children in their family in every possible way. Elliot in particular seems to be enjoying getting an extra set of "grandparents," and they have just spoiled the children a lot this Christmas. I also really like Jon's bro and sis in law who live in Mississippi. I wish they lived closer so we could hang out more.

His folks sound wonderful. It is a blessing to be in a loving extended family and feel welcomed and accepted by his siblings and parents.
Wishing you all a healthy and happy new year.
