Wow - what beautiful minds. How amazing to see them reaching for answers way too complicated even for grown ups. Thanks for sharing, as always.

My sister had several miscarriages after her first son was born. When her second son was finally here and after his personality began to develop, we decided that he just knew that she wasn't ready for him yet (he was a VERY BUSY toddler!) and that he was just giving her a little more prep time. It was a comforting way to think about all that loss. That little Blake just knew his mama needed more time. My own B often thinks about the time before she was born. She likes to think that unborn babies are angels...waiting for the right family to bless. Which is much more fun than reproductive science and genetics! :-)

Thanks, Cara.

I love to see those wonderful minds at work...children have such deep and extraordinary perceptions of what they think goes on with life and birth and death...sometimes I wonder at how/why we lose that magic and imaginative way of viewing the world as we grow older.
