I have two questions:
Has anyone ever heard of changing or adding to your baptismal name? (Which I think I choose poorly)
Has anyone ever heard of a priest appointing another godparent for someone whose godparent left the parish and had nothing to do with their godchild after the baptism? I feel abandoned (which of course I have been) and as a convert I would certainly like an involved godparent or sponsor whom I could ask questions of and learn from. I asked the priest about this person but they had no comment about their abandonment of me. I guess he didn't know how to respond. Anyway can a new one be appointed?
I wish I could have a do-over for the whole thing. The priest waited until the night before my baptism to try to find someone for me-I guess he forgot or was too busy during that week (I was baptized on Lazurus Saturday). I have tried to get to know some of the older women in the parish, but most are very busy with their own lives and families, and after all I'm not their goddaughter so why should they care?
