How do we ask someone to become potential legal guardian

My husband and I have a 13 year old son with various disabilities.(Mainly learning disabilities) He seems mostly typical but will never be able to live on his own. He is on a list to be eligible for group home living when he turns 18 if he wishes. He is our bio grandson but has lived with us his entire life and we have legally adopted him. My husband has no other family and mine has come straight out and told us if we hadn't raised him he would have been placed in foster care. This has us concerned about what will become of him if anything happened to us. There is a couple at our church that has taken a strong liking to our son and our son adores them. We share the same beliefs for the most part and we believe they would be perfect for our son. The only problem is the husband is on dialysis and the wife works.Would asking them to be our son's legal guardians if something happened to us be asking too much? If not how can we ask without them feeling pressured or making things awkward if they don't feel they can accept our request?

Proper Advice
by: Ms P Etiquette

Dear Parents,

You are attempting to make a life altering decision without proper advice. There are 3 people you would consult before you ask anyone to care for your precious son: your son's physician, an attorney experienced in with your situation and your minister ot priest. From those meetings you will have enough information to make the best possible choices for yourselves and your son.

Take care. Your son has very caring parents.
