Story with a twist

I loved the Christian view point, the love, but was disappointed for the first time in the Why of the story. As Christians the family in the book should have helped the mother make plans for the children long before her death. Of course accidents are hard to plan for so in the beginning of the story I was fine, but I found myself disappointed in everyone who loved this family when I found out she had a long term illness and was being guided by a Christian family. Karen usually handles these issues better.
