I'm here to ask advice for my friend. I am 20, he is 21 and his girlfriend is 21 as well. The two have been dating for perhaps 8 months, and he spent Christmas Break with her in her home country of Russia. There a child was conceived under intoxicated circumstances. He just found out today, and they both want to keep the child. They are trying to secure a visa for her to come to the United States under a fiancee visa plan, whereupon the couple must be married within 90 days of the foreigner's arrival.
He has asked me to be a godfather to the child, which I will readily do. They want to be married before the expecting date, which is sometime in September. He is a practicing Roman Catholic and she is Eastern Orthodox.
He comes from a stable family, and they have both agreed it would be best to raise the child in the United States.
Is there anything I should do? Is there anything I must do to ensure a good outcome to such a predicament? I know this does not directly affect me, but I feel that I should help the child be born into the best circumstances possible.
