The Lamentations of the UnbornAkiane Kramarik wrote these poems between the ages of 7 and 11. The scripture that speaks to me concerning the great wisdom given to Akiane at such a young age is: Matthew Chapter 12 Verse 25 and I quote Douay Rheims Holy Bible here: “At that time, Jesus answered and said: I confess to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent and hast revealed them to little ones.” When I first purchased my book which is signed by Akiane, I browsed through it then set it aside and almost forgot that I owned it. The time I purchased her book my little boy was a wee baby and I was a very busy new mother. It was not until last year 2017 that I really studied it and now realize what a great treasure is in it.

I end this introduction with the scriptures what God says about giving wisdom to the little ones and hiding wisdom from the learned. In Matthew Chapter 12 Verse 25 and I quote Douay Rheims Holy Bible here “At that time, Jesus answered and said: I confess to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent and hast revealed them to little ones.” This is why I believe Akiane Kramarik was given such great wisdom as a little one.
