Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Do you have a will? That is the only thing I know of that a court will follow. (I am not a lawyer) If you don't, now is a good time to write one. Especially if you don't feel comfortable with your parents raising your child if you can't.The other thing you could do is check with Family Court in your county. They may have other suggestions.Good luck!

the thing you have to consider is that best friends change throughout life and although people say " yea I wanna be the godparent" when it comes down to it the financial burden may be to much , but if its family of course they will do everything theycan and they def arent going anywhere
