    I get the feeling there is not an entirely happy story behind all this, but this happening when they're young is probably the best way it could have been. How old are your twins?

    I think the words "tragic circumstance" give the game away. All the best rev.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    That could mean anything. One should never assume.

    Ok, let's assume the mother died in childbirth (which is obviously awful, sorry to hear that Revan), what about the father or Grandparents?

    See, nosey.

    I'd say it was a godparent scenario.

    Either way, it's not the best situation for having a new addition to a family, all the very best to revan8 and family.

    Hopefully, all will settle into a new and happy family life soon.

    I'd no idea Godparents took priority in that situation, genuinely.

    It depends on your wishes/instructions in your will.

    My wife and I have nominated someone in the event of anything happening to us both.

    I'd leave mine to charity. If I had any.

    If you're only a few weeks old you probably wouldn't have any godparents yet. Anyway, when my mum died in my early childhood and my dad couldn't cope with it all his sister, my aunt, became my legal guardian and I grew up with their family for a significant chunk of my childhood. I turned out pretty awesome, I'm sure you'll do just as good a job.

    Yeah I didn't think God parents had much legal standing in this day and age.

    3.

    Father died months ago in a accident and mother died from a medical condition that the staff where unaware of during child birth. she has been touch and go for two weeks but passed today. She asked me after the dad died to be the legal guardian if ever anything happened to her as she didn't want certain relatives having him.

    I never thought she would die though but I made a promise and it will never be broken, doesn't help being in a already dodgy marriage.

    All the best Revan. Picking up on Chopsen's comment, it sounds like you might have two little helpers already in the house!

    If it's any comfort, a close friend grew up in similar circumstances, and is now one of the most warm-hearted, hard working and well adjusted parents around.

    @revan8 I'm so sorry, you must have been really close to her yourself. It must be really hard on you, too. If she knew you that well and trusted you that much, I'm sure you'll be an excellent mother. Guess you've got your hands full for the time being then, eh?
  • Deleted user 31 October 2012 06:27:26
    Thank you. Well I'm never really feel scared in life but I feel a little of it now. Up and off now, got 80 ish mile journey now to pick up my new family member.

    Presumably this was all locked down legally by your friend. Could imagine some horrible court scenarios otherwise. Good luck!

    Worst part is you won't be entitled to any maternity leave, hope you have plenty of family and friends around for support and an understanding boss.

    Good luck and good work revan. We need more people like you.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Actually I'd look in to that - I think as a legal guardian you'll have all the rights of a parent.

    Good luck - I'm sure you'll be fine, it'll seem easy after twins :)

    Thanks again, he is so cute. Got him a gorgeous little red hoody and a little toy. :)
    Awkward with the family as politics involved. Will upload some photos of him later when ever the hell I ever get home. His name is Dylan.

    Ben Matanle doesn't have any pictures of a baby on his portfolio blog so you might need to try a different one when you're looking for a photo. ;)

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.
