  • You are probably. Still her best friend but. So thing that she probably considered is which has a more stable life... I am not saying you are not stable she just may have found that her other friend is more stable

  • You're still her best friend. She can only have one godmother. I bet it was really hard for her to choose. Maybe you should try to put yourself in her shoes.

  • I agree with the above statement...she could only choose one and had to make a really tough decision (that included her hubby) and made the best decision she could for her child. Don't know if the other lady has other children, ages, home life etc, but I'm sure she had a tough time with it (I've been wracking my brain for 11 years trying to decide who I would want my kids to live with if hubby and I are in an accident that leaves our children "orphans" and I still can't make the choice because I feel like I'd be betraying someone if I make a choice)

  • in some cultures and religions, the role of godparent is directly related to the religious aspect. In other words, if something where to happen to the parents, the godparents would be responsible for ensuring the child receives a full exposure to the parent's religion of choice. This is what happened to me with by brother and SIL. I am not godparent to either of my nephews and at first it bothered me, but then it was explained that since bro and sil are catholic and I am not, they wanted godparents in the childrens lives that could carry on that tradition if osmething happened to them. I am in bro and sil's will as the person who would raise the boys if they were no longer here. Don't take it too personally....and BTW: i have never kept in touch with my godparents, but I am super close to my mom's best friends and sisters.
