Free will caused God to choose this family for this child and that family for that one? Or are you saying we choose our families? Sure, but being beaten and sexually abused by a relative is not the same as other kinds of abuse and you can see this in how these people are as adults. 'We all have challenges' really sounds quite smug. There are qualitative differences between challenges. This really made no sense at all. Interestingly we are continuously told about Jesus' suffering. I know you have your own version of Chrisitianity, but since you say 'we all have challenges' you must think this harping on the suffering Jesus went through at the end of his life as silly talk. We all suffer. Right?
