Once again congratulations and welcome to the Forrester family, Rose.

Further things to consider when writing welcome letters to family
Welcome letters are letters written to politely greet and introduce others to an organization. They could be sent to new students in a school, new employees in a company, attendees of a conference, etc. The primary objective of welcome letters is to boost the recipients' morale and to let them know that they are now an important part of the team. The letters are considered a gesture of courtesy and the loveliest way to show the recipient that you appreciate his/her presence, efforts, or interests in doing something. Welcome letters may also contain some important information that the recipients may not yet be aware of.
When writing welcome letters, your aim is to make the recipients feel "at home". Therefore, you need to be as friendly as possible. Start by officially introducing the organization to the recipient. Politely thank and congratulate him/her for becoming a part of the team. Reassure the recipient that he/she has made the right decision in choosing your organization. Make sure to address the recipient by his/her name. Be brief and include only the necessary information. Close the letter by thanking the recipient again and sign it off with your name and title.
Letters to Family
Letters to family are letters written to people who are related to each other by blood, marriage, or adoption, who commit to the mutual relationship. In most cases, these letters are sent by people who are away from their families. The purpose of writing to family members is mostly to let them know that you care about them and that they are on your mind. Apart from greetings letters to say hello to your family, you could send a congratulation letter to your daughter for graduating to the next class, an apology letter for missing your son's birthday or a thank-you letter for a gift from your wife.
Letters to family are usually casual. Therefore, the tone should be warm, sweet, and friendly. Depending on the reason for your writing, you can address a family letter to a specific person or the entire family. Open the letter with warm greetings. Deliver your message clearly. Where necessary, mention important news or events. Write in a conversational manner that makes the recipient feel as if you are actually talking to him/her. Close with a statement of reassurance of your love for the recipient and/or a request to write back.
