Their role in your child's life is way more important than the money you might be expecting them to shell out every Christmas, much more meaningful than the material things you might be expecting them to give. Their role as godparents is to help you guide and raise the child. In your absence godparents are to treat your kids like family, if you're lucky they are to treat them like their own. When it's time for you to leave your kids forever, with hope, their godparents will be there for them--to help them grieve, heal, and carry on. Godparents are to be part of your child's support system, so as he/she grows up he/she has more people to turn to in times of trouble, and not just financial trouble. Your child's godparents should be people you trust to give proper guidance, sound advice, and reliable support. They are to stay connected throughout the child's life to provide a sense of security.
