If they do what does it really mean to you? What doea the role of god mother or father have in your childs life? All of my kids have god parents and it means a great deal to our family. If one or both of us gets hurt the god parents are going to care for the child. And not only that all of my kids god parents are very involved in there lifes.

yes! I personally choose the godparents of my son. They are very close friends and like family already. They are like second parent to our children so it's only best that you chose one that really cares for your children. One that you know that will love them and care for them in your absence.

God father or mother means the on who will support thier children for all the good and bad things they have done. In fact they act as cushion to thier children when any problem is there because of the childrens misdeeds. They listen to everything and always make it a point to satisfy any kinds of wishes of children within thier limit

my kids does not have god parents, however i believe that god parents role is to provide for the children when their natural parents are not able to do so.i believe that they should be involved in their lives but should not be expected to support them.

I don't have god parents, but my mom did state who she wanted to take care of me if something happened to her. When I have kids, they will have god parents.

My husband and I don't have God parents, so we didn't name any one the God Parent of our son. We do have a living will, so if something happened to both of us, it states in there who will take care of our child.

I do not have any kids but am I a Godparent to my brothers daughter. She is so adorable but unfortunately they live in Texas and I am in Delaware so I do not get to see her very often though they will be here visiting in a couple of weeks. A Godparent is responsible for looking after their godchild if something were to happen to the parents. I would be responsible for taking care of her and raising her. I try to be involved in her life as much as I can from a distance.
