I divorced my wife over a dozen years ago, she passed away almost 2 years ago. Together we had 2 kids, they are now 23 and 25. After our divorce, she was with another guy for the rest of her life, but we always remained in contact and both had respect for each other.  I was thinking about having  a few pics blown up into 8x12s with frames to give my kids for Christmas.

 I am not sure if I should give them a picture with all 4 of us in it, one with just her and the two kids. or one that has just me with the two of them.   I understand I could do either, but for a Christmas present I was not sure what would be best.  HOnestly, I still miss when we were a family of 4, so I am compelled to give them a family photo with the 4 of us.  Is this wrong?    Thanks for any help.

 I am a first timer on here, just discovering this site today.  From what I have already seen, it was easy for me to bookmark this and not only look for advice and help, but to also give it.   Looking forward to sharing thoughts.

welcome to the site & thank you for sharing.  Your Christmas present idea sounds beautiful.  It's hard for me to give a definitive answer because I do not know if your children had a relationship with your deceased wife's other man & whether they still do?  If they do not and were not raised by him, then I do not see anything wrong in giving them a family photo of all 4 of you as you were at the beginning before you broke up.  I am so happy to hear that you still remained in contact with your ex and showed her respect even though things did not work out.  Your  children are likely better adjusted for it.  Have a good holiday.
