4th attempt. Sorry
HI! 24 with CF. I asked my mom the same questions and I still sometimes ask myself the questions.
To the question "Why did God do this?" The answer my family and friends have always given me is this: "God never gives more than he believes you can handle. He believes you are a strong person and this will make you stronger. He has shown you pain, and hardship, so that you will have compassion to those that are also in pain, and so that you will understand the struggles of life. Even if you don't believe in yourself sometimes, he always will, and you will always come out on top at the end."
To the question "Am I going to Die?" The sarcastic side of my family gave me this answer, "Yes, eventually everyone dies."
Will CF eventually kill them, yes, but they could go to school tomorrow and not come home again. Unfortuantely that is the world we live in. I know you can't say that to a child, but there is no easy answer to that question except, "Yes, eventually everyone dies."
Luckily, they are coming out with new things to help prolong our lives, so more and more are living longer and longer. It will be hard, and more and more questions will come. But as they grow older they will start to seek out their own answers. Just love them, and be there for them.
I hope it helps a little.
