I think it’s great your daughter is questioning these things at such a young age. It sounds like you feel some apprehension about the little brother/sister issue, because you have some control over that one. But what if your daughter prayed to G-d about something else, like world peace, or an A on the test, or anything else you don’t really have control over. You’d pretty much still have to give the same explanation – that your daughter should pray, and even if things don’t end up her way, it does not mean she was not being heard. And that even for grown ups things don’t always turn out the way they want. In this specific case, you might also want to ask why is it she really wants a little brother or a sister. The answer may be revealing and the issue may have another solution.
