Mother of 3 sons

by Tracy
(Hampstead,NH USA)

Is it appropriate to use a picture of the family taken at my one son's wedding that doesn't include my other son's girlfriend. The picture includes my husband,myself,my new daughter in law & my married son, as well as two other grown sons. One living at home and my oldest who lives with his girlfriend. The girlfriend is like family but just not legally. Also do I sign the card just from my husband and Myself? Two out of three sons do not live with us. I'm feeling really bad about sending it to my son and girlfriend. Help🙁

Dear Tracy,

Unless you are planning to have another family photo taken, I see no reason not to use the photo from the wedding. this is for a card, not a portrait to be hung on the wall. I am sure your son and his girlfriend will understand if you let them know ahead of time.
