I think the Orthodox sponsor - godparent - would be a BIG part of this equation.
Right - if you're planning on sponsoring the child, and the parents are not Orthodox, then you must also plan on having a very active role in the child's development for a long time. Your influence will be critically important.

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
