Tiffany Jenkins-Schaub started this petition to Pennsylvania State House and

For decades, parents have thoughtfully chosen Godparents for their children in hopes that those exact people will look after their children in the event of life changing circumstances (incarceration, incompetency, or worse; death). Unfortunately, Pennsylvania court system does not honor the title of a Godparent unless it is in a written living will or the Godparent is blood-related.

If a Godparent lives up to his/her title before and during the absence of the children's parents, he/she deserves a fair chance in court to earn their given rights for custody of the children.

Let's help make a change to honor the wishes of those parents who thoughtfully chose specific non-blood related candidates to care for their children during unfortunate circumstances. Let's help give Godparents a chance to fight for the bigger picture; the children.

The court system should honor the deceased, incarcerated, or incompetent parent's wishes!!

By signing this petition you could help bring Godparents a step closer to fulfilling their called upon duties to love, protect , care for , guide, and raise their Godchildren during unfortunate circumstances where the biological parents are unable to.

Please sign & share this petition to help make a difference in a child's life!
