My mother had never told me of her prebirth contemplations until I told her this a few days ago.
When a friend of mine was expecting, I was stopped in traffic right by a beautiful rose garden. I thought, "rose" and felt a huge rush of energy, and my friend came to my mind. She hadn't found out the sex of her baby, but I thought, 'I bet it's a girl'. I found out later, she was giving birth right then, and had named her daughter Sarah Rose! She knew she would name her Sarah if the baby was a girl, but didn't think of Rose until she met her, after she was born.
I love that you're claiming your name!
