  • Because we were their perfect match - a little zany, big hearts, full of life and love...yes, my babies chose us because we were meant for each other..FOREVER

  • Uh, right. And no, I've never thought that before. I don't believe it now.

  • I don't know about "picking". I'm a spiritual agnostic/atheist. In the sense that I believe reincarnation may exist. The best belief with that, I've read, is that we tend to travel in soul groups (like families), reincarnating around the same time so, we can live with or see one another again in the next life. So, basically we just pick parents that will guarantee us that. However, that could just all be BS. I mean, I wish I had a better mother. However, I can see how some people were essential in my life. But, maybe everything is random, and like all other forms of religion, it's just something we tell ourselves to make ourselves feel better & to try to make sense of the randomness.

  • i don't believe babies pick their parents. a sperm and an egg meet, and thus a baby is created.

  • Cute idea, but not true. If it were, drug addicts, alcoholics, abusers, etc. would be sterile.

    Yeah, me too, PMS. My aunt believes this, but I've told her I must have been high or something if I picked mine.
