I grew up in the Catholic church. I went through Sunday school, got my first communion, confirmation the whole works. When Aiden was born he was baptized in the Catholic church just like I was supposed to do. It wasn't until recently that I really started to question my beliefs. I started searching for answers to questions I always secretly asked. While searching I found that I was not the only person in the world with the same questions. My family never supported my curiosity. Rather than allowing me to find my faith they handed it to me.
Last night I became a Godmother. I am still searching for many answers. I am still trying to figure out all of my beliefs. The one thing that I promise to give my Godchild is support. I will support him in all of his questions about the faith. I will help him to understand and find his own place in the church, and I will support his curiosity. Faith is not something you get. It is something you build.
