Je suis née d'une famille chrétienne de quatre enfants. Orpheline de mère, j' ai grandi avec mon père que j'estime très responsable. Pourquoi je dis cela? Parce qu'il est très rare de trouver un père qui accepte d'élever seul ses enfants et de les mettre dans des très bonnes écoles afin qu'ils puissent être meilleur dans leur avenir. Depuis 1988, à la mort de ma mère; c'est en cette année 2013 que mon papa veux se marier parce qu'il estime qu'aucun des ses enfants ne sera maltraité parce que la plupart des deuxièmes femmes maltraitent les enfants rencontrées dans le nouveau foyer.
Ma raison de la rédaction de cette petite histoire est non seulement d'éveiller la conscience des parents à être responsable envers les enfants que Dieu les a confié mais aussi de susciter la conscience des enfants orphelins à ne pas se décourager, mais à mettre leur confiance en Dieu et d'aller en avant en espérant que Dieu fasse de grandes choses dans leur vie.
Je remercie toute personne qui lira ce journal et qui le commentera, et pourquoi pas le corriger. Merci et à la prochaine.

English translation by community member milsgra

I am from a Christian family of four children. My father is a widow and I grew up with my father who is a really responsible single father. Why do I say this? Because it is very rare to find a father who is willing to raise his children alone, and on top of that to put them in great schools so that they can have a better future. My mother died in 1988 and now in 2013 my father wants to take a new wife because he thinks that none of his children will be affected by the presence of a step-mother, since most of the second wives mistreat the step children from their new family.

The reason I am writing this little story is not only to bring consciousness to the parents to become more responsible towards the children that God has trusted them with but also to incite the consciousness of the orphans to not give up hope; but to trust in the Lord to operate miracles in their lives and to move forward. I thank all those who will read this journal and who will comment and why not correct them. Thank you and until next time.
