    2. Well, my godfather was just a friend of my father's and would buy me a present at Christmas and on my birthday. He never did anything special and I haven't actually seen him in a long time. My little sister's godmother was also a friend of my mother's and she also received presents on her birthday and on Christmas. Traditionally, though, Godparents were responsible for overseeing the child’s religious education and for caring for the child should they be orphaned. In other words, Godparents were chosen to assist with the child’s faith and nurture his or her relationship with God. They were also chosen to become actual caretakers of the Godchild, should something happen to the child’s biological parents. Today, the role of a Godparent seems to have less of a religious implication. Nowadays, Godparents are usually chosen to take an interest in the child’s upbringing and personal development – not just for religious purposes. A Godparent is not a legal position, thus the godchild is not necessarily left to the Godparents should they be orphaned. For Godparents to act as foster parents, it must be legally specified through a will. Hope this helps. :-D ...
