- Why did my mom and dad have to die?
- Why didn't God answer me when I asked him to save her?
What will we tell them? Because I seriously have no good answer. I know that God uses rotten circumstances for good, but will that bring comfort to a child whose entire life has been turned upside down? I doubt it...
So here is my plan... I will pray with my kids, we will cry together and I will listen when they tell me how perfect their other mom was... And when they ask me why... I will tell them that I don't know, and that I am sorry because I think I would have loved their mom too.
