I was raised Catholic and am therefore used to the ideas that children should have Godparents in their lives. The problem is that I am not a practicing Catholic anymore and am not going to baptize dd. I do however, like the idea of having people who are close to the parents be special in a child's life. Does anyone's dd/ds have Godparents although they are not baptized? Is there maybe a more appropriate term that could designate their role as spiritual/life mentor without offending my Catholic family?
