Re: How did you decide who would get your kids if something happened to you?
We choose my cousin. She is the same age as me and doesn't appear to want to have children, yet she is good with children and her DH is amazing with them! She has her reasons for not wanting them but I believe she would be a good mother. I don't talk to her that often and she has only seen DS once in person, however she is our best option so that is who we picked. We had to decide this before we had children so we made this decision 7 years ago and I don't regret it. She also would get any frozen embryos if there were any. We had to modify our wills for the IVF cycles.
OP I would go with your younger sister. People rise to the occasion and I would think that you would have life insurance that would go along with your children and that could help her if the unthinkable happened in the recent future.
