Godmother to a little one

Greetings ICLWers! As you can see, I've just recently started this blog so there is not much here. You can see my history on the left.

I suppose the biggest news of the weekend is that my husband's brother and his wife have asked us to be the godparents (and legal guardians in the worst case scenario) to their little one. His wife is due at the beginning of July. I had actually prepared myself in case they asked us (one of the benefits of thinking too much about every possible situation, I suppose).

I am so glad that they asked us a month after they told us the news of the pregnancy because it took me a week to deal with the pregnancy news on Christmas Day. Had they sprung this at the same time of the announcement, I don't think I could have dealt with it.

My husband and I are very happy in our new roles. We are close to them, and we know that they have asked us not as infertile relatives but loving brother and sister-in-law.


  1. Happy ICLW. :)

    I think it's wonderful that you're able to be godparents! I truly hope you've got a little one growing inside you come July. :)

  2. That is great news!!! I think you will make wonderful Godparents!!

    make sure that sister in Law of yours shares some baby dust with you!! (as well as any other pregnant friends you have who have been slacking and canceling dinner plans with you ;) )

  3. That is really cool! What a strong relationship you and your husband must have with them. :)

  4. That is amazing to have been chosen to be a godparent & legal guardian. You must be so loved and trusted by them. Good luck with your upcoming appointment hope switching clinics does the trick for you!
