This study aims to determine the family's motives for changing attitudes from refusing to accepting back their family members who converted to Islam (converts). This study was a qualitative method with a descriptive approach. Data were collected through observation, in-depth interviews, and relevant literature. This study found that families changed from refusing became accept their family members who converted to Muslims driven by several things: (1) psychological-emotional motivation in the form of affection for children; (2) Economic pragmatic reasons because children who convert to Islam are able to meet the economic needs of the family, and; (3) The ability of converts to take the "heart" of their extended family through the creation of warm communication. Subjective reasons formed through the linking of emotional-psychological relationships, pragmatic interests, and warm communication within the extended family circle, succeeded in encouraging the re-integration of a family.
