My hubby and I are currently living in Bangkok, and are expecting our 1st child in January. I'll give birth here in Thailand, and our baby will be baptized here at a local church. I'm really concerned though about finding godparents for our baby and am worried that we'll be denied baptism because of lack of godparents. Only my SIL and husband are Catholic, but no one else in our family is, nor do we have any Catholic friends. We're not close with my SIL, she's actually hubby's stepsister, but their parents married when they were older so it's not like he grew up with her. I wouldn't be very comfortable asking them plus it's not like they could come to Bangkok for the baptism.
We haven't found a church here yet, but when we do, we will definitely be talking to the parish priest. I'm just wondering if anyone had ever had this problem.
Thanks in advance!
