Dear [Guardian’s Name],
As parents, we want the best for our children, and we understand that unexpected events can occur that may require us to be away from them for a period of time. We are writing to you to request that you act as our children’s legal guardian in the event that we are unable to care for them.
We trust you to provide our children with the love, attention, and care that they need, and we believe that you are the best person to take care of them in our absence. We know that you share our values and beliefs, and we are confident that you will provide our children with a safe and nurturing environment.
In the event that we are unable to care for our children, we authorize you to make all necessary decisions regarding their health, education, and welfare. This includes, but is not limited to, medical treatment, enrollment in school, and participation in extracurricular activities.
We also authorize you to take custody of our children and to make any necessary arrangements for their care, including but not limited to, arranging for childcare, providing for their basic needs, and making financial decisions on their behalf.
We understand that this is a significant responsibility, and we appreciate your willingness to take on this role. We would like to make it clear that this arrangement is temporary and that we will resume our role as our children’s legal guardians as soon as we are able.
Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
