Several months ago my granddaughter told her mother a story, a story that was later told to me. A story like this, especially when it comes from a five year old can literally raise the hair on the back of one’s neck or at least raise goosebumps. Was this a distance memory from a past life? Reincarnation?
The story begins:
Mommy did you know that I had another mommy and daddy? Did you know that I was born in China? I also had an older brother that use to live in China. In China, they don’t like little girls.
When I was born my other mommy, daddy and brother loved me very much. They gave me lots of hugs and kisses everyday. They knew that I could not stay with them because someone might come and take me away or hurt me. They didn’t want anyone to hurt me so they knew that they must send me away.
My mommy had a beautiful basket that my other grandma gave her. She wrapped me in my warm, soft baby blanket and put me in the basket. She told me not to be afraid. Mommy and daddy took me to the ocean. They put the basket with me in it in the ocean. I heard my mommy and daddy crying. Mommy told daddy that the angels would watch over me and keep me safe until a new family found me.
Mommy pushed the basket and like a little boat I floated away.
I floated for a long, long time. One day I woke up and I wasn’t floating anymore. My basket was sitting on the beach. My new daddy found me and took me to you. My new daddy here is really my brother from China.
He came and found me because he loved me and missed me. He told me we were in America and that I would be safe now. He told me you wanted a little girl just like me. That is why you and daddy are my mommy and daddy now. I love you and daddy but I still love my other mommy and daddy too and I miss them sometimes.
I am sure my five year old granddaughter has never heard of China’s one child policy or their pre-modern views regarding girls. Even if she had such information would surely have been beyond her comprehension. Past Life? Reincarnation?
