Hi georgine,

It is hard to find free sample letters anymore! Seems most sites are
selling them now. I did find several sites with sample letters.
Obviously, I found no letters worded exactly to your needs. The
samples I have included will need to be customized with your own words
and warmth!

You might consider a friendly style letter, introducing yourself in the content!
King?s Harvest

Layout of a friendly letter

WritingHelp has a sample introductory letter. Its intended for
business, but you could ?friendly? it up! For example, you could make
the content warmer, and close it  ?Fondly, georgine? (no quotation
marks, of course!)

You could add a touch of humor, and modify this sample letter of recommendation!

How about this one? You can change ?Welcome you to campus? to ?Welcome
you into the family?

Ask Oxford has some sample letters:
This one you could change around to say ?I?m delighted to accept the
job of being your son?s mother-in-law?

Writing Help:
Letter of reference

Format for a friendly letter
English Plus

You could change this one to ?Thank you for the opportunity to be your
son?s mother-in-law?
or this one to ? I?m applying for the position of Mother-in-Law to your son?

I?m including this link, but I?m not sure if it work if you don?t have
MS Word installed. (It?s worth a try!)

Here are some interesting 100 year old letters of introduction!

And, finally; 
This site has 4 interesting designs. You type your letter using a word
processor, copy and paste it into the border, and print!

If you have time, you may want to order this book, on
Great Letters for Every Occasion

My local library has several books on letter writing, with samples.
I'm sure you can find the same book, or others at your local library.
One of them is: Everyday Letters for Busy People" Hundreds of letters
you can copy, by  Debra Hart May, Career Press, 1998

Hope this helps you compose your letter, and congratulations on being
a new mother-in-law!
