Re: How did you decide who would get your kids if something happened to you?
Yes, we picked MIL and FIl, who are not ideal. But we had to prioritize what is most important and went with her. She is very loving and devoted, extremely responsible, and will be the closest we can get to a parents love for them. Thats the best we can do. I imagine they would have expression/communication issues, sexual repression, and would likely be told there is only one acceptable worldview , and not exposed to any diversity. We are not thrilled about it. But no one can replace us. We have friends who have much more similar parenting views, but I can't imagine they would ever love out kids the way dhs parents would....
