Inaanak (Godchild): Seal of Friendship

I think making your friend your “kumare” or “kumpare” is one of the Filipinos’ way of sealing friendships. It’s like a bond that ties two friends together, making sure that whatever happens, even if you become separated by distance due to changes in jobs or career, you will be friends and your lives are somehow connected, no matter what. 🙂

Last Sunday, I attended the christening of the newest addition to my growing pool of godchildren, Kaykay, Ate Doli’s unica hija. But I know that being a godparent is not just a “seal of friendship”. It’s more than that. It entails a lot of responsibility to take part in raising up a child.
