Why Does Child Abuse Exist?

Noahide here.

One of the greatest struggles I have with G-d is wondering why does He allow the abuse (and worse) of children to exist? I understand there are some things that we can never comprehend, and we may never know the reason as to why He does or allows certain things, but I can not even begin to accept that there is a reason that child abuse exists?

We all have free will, and some people just so bad things with that free will – I know that. However, when it comes to children, you are talking about a young, immature, innocent being who they themselves cannot properly understand that “bad” people exist or how to defend themselves, etc.

Why allow a child to suffer in the ways that they do? Sometimes I lay I bed before I go to sleep and just contemplate this and it near-destroys me.
