I remember one time a person that claimed to be a friend told me that God has plans every thing for us in life indeed He knows us even before we are put into our mothers’ wombs.
I hated her then because i thought she was being so unfair with her comments, cannot know if did it to console me but I felt deeply hurt.
In fact she told me being an orphan is a blessing from God and I failed to respect her judgment up date.
I have always wanted to ask God why some people are born without parents or may be they simply fall from the heavens to earth.
As a child i don’t have any good memories of how i spent the rest of my child hood apart being in the kitchen to prepare food for my other cousins; this is a terrible feeling.
All you know is living up to satisfy other people’s needs and if you pick no quarrel with any at the end of the day then you dream of a better tomorrow.
Waking up very early in the morning to make sure every thing is order is all you can worry about.
If there was chance someone could have a dialogue with God then we would have a number of questions to pose to him. I recall my cousin asking his mother why he did not have a father like the other kids at school and my auntie had no proper answers to young kid.
‘So it is God that killed him’ that was the boy’s response these are some of the situations young children never wish to go through. Loosing a parent is the worst experience any one would ever wish to see in life but soon or later it comes and we have to adapt to it.
Even the strong grown ups do not want the way it feels and yet life can not be forever, if there is time for birth and happiness there should be time for sorrow and time for death as well. Therefore how we take in sad times is all that matters.
How do we support children that have no one to turn to?
Treat her as your own. It is not of her making that she lost the people that were supposed to take due responsibility for her.
These children are too young to understand the world so it is the foster parent’s duty to look after them.
Once you decide to take in a child you are resuming full responsibility of all her worries because now it is you she has. Do not make her have all those bad memories of her lost parents, she needs to be happy.
Take her to school and let her have the best in life; your rewards will always come from the creator therefore do not expect her to work herself up trying to pay up for what you have done for she will have you as her hero forever.
