am only 14 and 1/2 weeks pregnant (and not planning to ask godparents until birth) but we're a bit stuck...
Had always intended to ask our good friends to be godparents - not keen on family such as aunts/uncles etc... as godparents too, plus they are catholic and religious like us and we want spiritual guides for our child too.
Problem is this - or should I say two problems;
- they live about 8 hours away
- are already godparents to two little girls already so they will be busy
Unfortunately, there's really noone else we could ask, for the above reasons
What shoulod we do?????????????

=I was hesitant to ask my brother for Kaele as he was godfather to my nephew, but I realised, that if he didnt want to do it he would say no. I told him my fear and he told me he would of been quiet upset if that was the reason he wasnt asked.
FWIW my brother has 5 children and is godfather to my sisters boy, plus my two, and it was most definately the right choice for us he works away for 4 weeks at a time but has a very close bond with my children. Particulary Kaele.

How often do you see these people and would they be able to maintain a close relatinonship with your child?
A fair bit, they are our closest friends and have been for several years - hubby was mc at their wedding and she was moh for mine. When we all lived in perth we saw them at least once a week, and spend the holidays together now - we're all teachers/ta's

All our children will have the same godparents. We're not religious so for us it was more about choosing people we knew would always be in their lives, would always be a source of love, support and guidance for them, people they will hopefully feel comfortable to turn to for all those little things you don't want to talk to your parents about.
We were the same as Megs. We chose my Sister, and my great aunt who I am very close too.

"It's pointless" said reason.
"Give it a try" whispered the heart...
