New Parents

Starting a family is a beautiful thing.  It’s hard not to be “all smiles” when thinking about how kids progress—the things they say and do as they’re growing that just leave you in awe and wonder about how the human mind develops.  It really is astounding, in light of that, to wonder about our purpose on earth and to think about the legacy we leave behind.  The only thing we know for sure is that we believe we are, and were, influenced by those who lived before us.

Is there any way to know for sure though?  Is there any way to track our evolution through time as a civilization and know for certain that we are influenced by the actions of past generations?  I believe there is.  If you think about in a philosophical way, it’s actually a difficult question.  I mean, how do we even know what’s real versus what is our perception of real?  We are, after all, likely part of a very big picture, and our window is very small.

The way we can answer the question about being affected by the past is to look forward.  Can you see how you’ve touched the lives of other people, how you’ve influenced and helped shaped them and their perceptions?  Hopefully your children are coming to mind right about now.

The Seasoned Pros and the Rookies

It’s my hope that people who have been parents for a while already realize what I’m talking about.  It’s literally the joy of parenthood.  This article is aimed at you.  It’s really aimed at new parents, those young couples (or even single parents) who are just starting to figure things out.

As a law firm, we focus on helping people get their affairs in order so their children are financially, emotionally, and spiritually cared for if something tragic happens.  Don’t be fooled into thinking “it can’t happen to me.”  It happens to someone every day.  The question is not whether you can control outcomes.  You can’t.  The question is can you make an ongoing difference in the lives of your children if something terribly unfortunate happens to you.  Do you have a plan to make sure it’s your legacy that gets passed on—to make sure that the fate of your children is not decided by a judge who thinks she or he knows what’s best for your little ones?

You Know What’s Best For Your Children

That’s right.  So do you have a plan in place to make sure that what you know and how you want it instilled in your children will be followed no matter what happens to you?  Most people don’t think through these things.  Are you different?

Our law firm is dedicated to making sure you have a financial plan for your children.  That goes without saying.  Where we are quite different is on the emotional and spiritual end of things.  Call that your story, your legacy, or whatever you want.  The bottom line is that we are committed to making sure you are able to effectively raise your children, even if you’re not around to do it.

To your family’s health, wealth and happiness!
