Hello dear sisters and brothers,
My friend and his boyfriends (both catholic, not married yet but are going to soon) live together and have 2 kids, a 4 year old boy and 8 months old girl. My friend asked me to be the Godmother to the daughter even before she was born ( She even named her after me which is very sweet of her) I love kids so you can imagine my excitement to be asked to be Godmother.
We are planning to baptize the kids sometime this year or early next year , but the only problem is both children don't have Godfather and the boy doesn't have Godmother either. My friend asked me to find Godfather for my Goddaughter but i don't think i will be able to since i'm not yet married and i'm not dating right now.
1) Is it possible that i can be Godmother for both kids ( she wants me to if its possible) ? if yes Can i hold both of them together during baptizing?
2) Is having Godfather mandatory? my sisters and i don't have a godfather, we only have godmothers and my bother only has a godfather.
3) Anything else i need to know? I am a devoted catholic myself and want to get those kids baptize ASAP.
Thank You for your helps.
