This is a little off the subject, but in regards to karma we having coming into each incarnation, I have always wondered what happens when a child is adopted? My understanding is that the soul picks its situation based on the parents? M.C.
There are many different factors that are at work in the process of a soul’s incarnating through “parents”. Our world offers such a variety of experiences. Sometimes the soul has choices, sometimes the soul has choices made for them. All of this depends on the lessons the soul needs to learn – including going through any experiences the soul themselves created for others – that which we know as karma.
One pathway which is common for souls who may have taken life in the past, is to seek to help bring forth life, in the present – by giving birth to another soul. However, with this pathway, it is not always a part of their path to be responsible for the other person during the entire lifetime. The human adoption process then becomes an avenue, where one woman may give birth – bring forth life – but another couple may raise the child as their own.
The bonds of healing can exist with the birth mother soul which stay with the soul born and the mother soul, while the soul or souls chosen as parents have soul connections to carry forth with raising the child. This means that all involved have been connected in past lives in various roles and in various degrees.
Because there is such a diversity of experiences in human life, there are also a diverse number of pathways for human adoption to serve as a venue where souls can come together to become a human family. The key phrase being “diversity of experiences”. This is why we can feel that we’re family members with those whom we are not blood related.
