One night Elena cried a lot. She kept my mommy and daddy awake all night. She cried for about a week like that. They didn’t know what to do with her, except they gave her teething tablets. It was hard for my parents because they were so tired and had three little children to manage. I tried to help during the day and I did my schedule. I didn’t know how long it would last. But my parents said God could help us. It turned out she had a tooth. We discovered it one night. I put my hand in her mouth and felt a bump, like a mountain! My parents told me that she had a tooth that night. So that was the cause of all her crying! I learned that God can take care of us when we trust Him.
