America

i saw this tele-movie, 'America', today. the story of a foster boy, teenager now, named America struggling with his past in foster homes, the sexual abuse on the hands of an uncle, his suicide attempt at 16, his dreams of mt. everest, its peace and supremacy of domain.  how would my daughter fare should i die early, if my support networks die down and she has to live with others to survive? one can only shudder at the fates unknown to us. how a good God could make or allow this to happen?
