I enjoy reading stories about near death experiences and children who have past life memories , as it gives me hope and inspiration that "this world isn't all there is." I have been reading a book called Near Death in the ICU and also read an article in the daily mail about a book that I want to get called Memories of Heaven and it was a good article that shared many interesting stories. It also got me thinking about something that I wanted to share on this forum to get some other opinions on. My two questions related to children's past life memories are as follows: Why would someone choose to go into a messed up family? U know how many kids r in foster care? So they chose their parents , who then chose to give them up so they go to different parents? Doesn't make sense.. And 2, if there is no such thing as time, then how come none of these kids report things from a "future life"? I don't know.. It just got me thinking and was hoping we could create a dialogue.
