I really didn't know where to put this thread, but since it involves our church (baptist), I thought I'd try here. Mods, move it if it's not the right place. My wife and I won 2 wills at a raffle. Thinking of who we would have be the ones raising our children in the instance my wife and I both pass away has been REAL tough. My parents are believers, but having them being the guardians is out of the question (due to a number of reasons). My in-laws are not believers, so they are out of the question, as well as her side of the family (sisters) for the same reason. We have cousins our age that are believers, but they live in Washington D.C., in the military, and we didn't want our children to always be uprooted and that far from their biological family (my son LOVES both sets of grammy's and pa-pa's ) We have thought about leaving the decision to the elders in our church, as their spritual lives and how they are raised in that regards are much more valuable to us than their physical living arrangements (there are quite a few young couples, and I'm sure one of them would be more than willing to be their guardians). Has anyone ever done anything like this before, or heard of anything like it?
