​To My UNBORN But AWAITED Child: What World AWAITS You? A World Where Children Are Not SAFE? A World of #The6IGBONLABOY? 

I guess for 11 (eleven) you have been trapped in my loins, at least if I begin to count from the day I took the wife of my youth, Oluwafunmilayo as a wife… 

When you come, you shall be to me and your mother the child of our old age, yet our first, as I now approach 50 years of age and I do not consider your mother a young woman by any standard…At least not as young as when I took her as a wife eleven (11) years ago till death do us part. I think I have started living in the second half of life…

Quite a lot of physical, spiritual and medical efforts have been put into your invitation to this realm…Yet, it seems you are taking your time with the Maker…

I have however never been troubled that you are taking your time, neither is your mother… We have chosen by the grace of God,  who strengthens us not to lose any iota of sleep about what seems to be your late arrival according to human permutation or judgement…As far as I am concerned your arrival is in the hand of God and there is nothing human worries and sleepnessness can do to accelerate same.  That is why I christened you ODINAKACHUKWU few years ago…
We have also realised that whatever sleep we choose to lose now will be a waste of life…And life, once wasted,  would it be restored? I think not…And why must we lose life for what we have no control over… Over our sanity, we have control today under God and this is one control we do not intend to lose… I am sure it is a control you will be proud we maintain when you finally arrive here…

It has become necessary to write to you today as I know that one day you will read this whether I am here or gone to where you are expected from… I know missing each other on the way is also a possibility…Therefore, I better leave a message for you…

I intend to do this as a series, sharing with you what I believe I need you to know to make your life easier than mine…
My Dear Odinakachukwu, I do not know your gender and it does not any matter to me… I know gender only speaks of difference and neither superiority nor inferiority, as some backward societies will have us believe…

I wrap up this introduction to our discussion with mixed feelings…I am disturbed in my spirit,  soul and body the kind of world we are working with all arduous tenacity to bring you into… I sometimes feel and ask myself if we should even bother you,  considering the labyrinthe rubbles of disorder our world is buried in today…Like Jesus Christ said in Gethesemane and as a man who woman, whose life is surrendered to the Father would say in the midst of Hard Moral Choices, I often find myself saying in total submission, ‘Your will,  not my will…’

Hard Moral Choices? Yes Odinakachukwu…What is Hard Moral Choices? Odinaka, they are choices,  which benefits only outweighs its woes in the potential…Such choices are only identified by the initiated,  who have developed a sight above s/he nose…Such choices are made with all the caution in the person making it…

So my dear Odinaka, I consider bringing Children to this world today as a critical part of my Hard Moral Choices Theory… Why? It has been my most considered,  but troubling opinion as a Total Child Development Expert of over 20(twenty) years that the real joy of having children is not merely bringing them to this world, it is how they are raised or the values with which they are raised…

Anyway,  I will be back to this discussion soon but let me share a bit of current affairs with you butressing the unthinkable disorder I point out earlier…

It has been 43 days since six(6) school children were kidnapped from Model School, Igbonla,  Epe, Lagos and yet they have not been found… In fact there is deafening and betraying silence on the part of those whose constitutional responsibility it is to secure the lives and property of citizens…

As it is today,  these innocent ones,  whose parents send on a mission to receive education but today in the captivity of kidnappers…

I am also informed that it was the second visit of the kidnappers to the school…It has also been gathered now that as the kidnappers wrote a letter to Igbonla,  heralding their operations, another school has received such letter…

It my pain today, my dear Odinaka that we live in a nation, which has lost total respect for the dignity of human person and life and her invaluable world…

Though,  you are not yet here,  I do not pray to be in the shoes of the parents of The Igbonla 6 as we have come to know them…
Again, my dear ODINAKACHUKWU, if I ask you, where would you prefer, where you are right now, where your Angels behold the face of the Father in immeasurable peace or here where things are tumbling down in cacaphonous torrents…
Is this invitation being extended to you even about you or about us?

Here I surrender my conscience for a thorough search by his All-seeing Maker…

Good morning Odinaka, I will be back sooner than you think… Do have an INSPIRED day with the FATHER.

Think the FAMILY…Thin the CHILD…Think TODAY…Think the FUTURE™
