We are in a heck of a dilemma…we are very close to getting placed with a newborn through adoption. We are completely sick about the fact that we have nobody to be Godparents. Nobody…
My brother was DD"s godparent 8 years ago, but he is no longer a practicing Catholic. Isn’t registered at a parish OR attending one. My parents are not practicing Catholics. I have no other immediate family. DH was raised Methodist and his siblings/cousins/ nieces, etc are all methodist. Our family members that we are closest with are Lutheran. We have ZERO Catholic friends.
I have several cousins who are Catholic, but here’s the issue: we are going to be likely adopting a mixed race baby, and most of my family, sadly, are somewhat biggots. i feel like it would be hypocritical to ask them to be a godparent. \
So…what to do? Any suggestions???
