Hey everyone. I would like some advice/opinions please.
I am expecting my third child in 3 weeks. I have been praying very hard about who to ask to be godparents for this baby. (Hubby is non-practicing Catholic and leaves the decision up to me.)
I have prayed very hard about it and I am led to ask my brother-in-law’s girlfriend. She is a very sweet girl and very strong in her spirituality. When she was younger, she was a youth leader at her parish. She is still active in her parish community. Most importantly, she loves my kids to death.
I have mentioned asking her, but my mother-in-law and other family members have not endorsed the idea. They are afraid of what would happen if she and my bro-in-law ever broke up. (They have been together for about 4 years!) The family is afraid that a relationship with her and the child could become awkward or estranged.
If you were in my position, what do you think you would do? Please feel free to ask me any further questions about this situation that I may have not already addressed.
