Other members of the family such as grandparents, siblings, aunts and uncles can be included in the ceremony process. 

Parents may also have special friends who wish to express a commitment to a child and affirm a duty of care in front of witnesses.

You can appoint mentors or god parents, who will promise a special relationship with the child and strengthen family and friendship relationships by providing the opportunity for the family to be together.
