  • I'm not a godparent, but my kid's godparents are very involved in their lives.

  • I am very involved in mine. Some people don't take that role very seriously. My kids godparents changed after we asked them to be god parent's to them. We have seen them 3 times in the past 6 years. Not even a b-day card. Really sad.

  • I am super close to my god babies. Matter of fact I helped my boys get ready for homecoming Saturday. I love those kids like my own

  • I am not a god parent

  • I am. I used to be very involved, but we got separated by jobs changing and miles and timezones and I haven't seen my goddaughter in years. To be a godparent was a big deal, I had to go to their city in another state to take a class and then the next day there was a huge ceremony at church, with signing of papers and making verbal public committment to being a godparent. Followed by a huge dinner with all the family members and everyone taking lots of pictures. I send cards and always include my contact information, I guess they don't take it as seriously as I do. People are funny and I don't mean funny ha-ha.
