I have this wild idea in my head to let my oldest be godmother to her sister who is about to be born.
She was confirmed this past spring. So she is a confirmed and practicing Catholic.
However, I am not sure if she would be allowed to do that, as she is 9 years old. I am also not sure if that would place extra and possibly unfair burdens on their sister relationship.
We just are so short on family members to be godparents, and while we have friends at our parish, we have only been here for three years. I think I would have to have a deep, longstanding friendship with someone before I could ask them to be a godparent. And we have not had enough time here to develop any friendships that serious, nor have we met people with whom we felt that connection.
