My brother and his wife chose my DH and me to be their first baby's godparents. I am expecting in a few months and have a few best friends. I want to make my brother and his wife (who is Jewish) godparents because they're very sweet and would love my child like their own, but I have a few best friends who are not so stable. Plus, can you make a non-Christian woman godmother? We're catholics.
Would my friends understand my decision?

The Catholic church will allow you to have a proxy stand in for a Godparent of a different faith. I know this. So have the SIL as the Godmother but have someone Catholic stand in for her.
Your friends really don't even have to know about our decision, unless you have told them previously that you wanted them as Godparents. Know what I mean? Will they question you, go so far as to ask why you did not pick them? I wouldn't think so, but I'm just sayin' Why should it even come up, to the point that you need to explain? And if that's the case, they should understand your feelings, you can just say you prefer to have family members if you need to.
