Cupid’s Advice:

Families come in all shapes and sizes. No matter who you’re bringing into your family, it’s important to welcome them with open arms. If you’re unsure how to seamlessly expand your family, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Tell extended family: Whether you’re having a baby, adopting a child, or reuniting with an adult family member, it’s important to make sure they feel welcome. That starts with the entire family being excited to meet them, not just the parents.

2. Make sure they’re comfortable: For a baby, this would be setting up a nursery. However, it can vary for older family members. Make sure to openly communicate with them about their needs. Listening to them will make them feel valued and like part of the family.

3. Put energy into the relationship: It’s not enough to be initially welcoming. Let your new family member know how excited you are for a future with them and use your actions to follow through with that. Be supportive, be accepting, and be there for them.
