When signing a letter to my stepson, does dad come first?

by Dor
(Trenton NJ )

We are doing a senior family ad for my stepson.

The signatures at the end will be his father, myself brothers, sister and grandparents. My mother in law said proper etiquette is that my name (the woman) goes first before my step sons dad.
I believe the closest to my son should sign first. I'm not his real mom. What are your thoughts?
This is for my stepson, it's not addressed to everyone else.

Hello Dor,

Please sign the ad the way you think your stepson would expect. He is the important one to consider.
​Nothing else should be considered when deciding whose comes first.​
