I often say that parenting is the most important job in the world, even if it is sometimes a difficult one. When I talk of the importance of parents, I don’t just mean biological parents. I include adopted parents, long-term foster parents or anyone who has been asked to be the primary carer of a child. In this abstract from my book A Message of Hope from the Angels, I write about how Archangel Michael explained to me once that your child has chosen you as his mother or father.
“I have been trying to find a way to explain just how important being a parent is. Angel Michael has told me to remind you that your child chose you as its parent, just as Jesus chose Holy Mary to be his mother and Joseph to be his father on this earth.
Your child has chosen you as its mother or father. Hard as you might find it to believe, your child – when it was still a soul in heaven, before it was conceived – chose you to be its parent. It chose you, knowing everything about you, the good and the bad. Even knowing that you might not be the best father or mother, it chose you over all others. I can’t explain why unborn souls choose a particular parent – why did my children choose me and Joe?
Babies also choose adoptive or long-term parents. Sometimes a soul will have chosen more than two parents, knowing that a parent might die or be unable to rear it. When I come across people with infertility problems having a baby I always tell them not to give up. Infertility does not mean that a soul hasn’t chosen you to be its mother or father.
The same is true for any baby that has been aborted. At a signing recently, a young woman told me of an abortion she had had some years before. As she sat in front of me in tears, I was shown the spirit of a baby boy on her lap. The expression of love on the face of the spirit baby boy was so moving. I could see its unconditional love for its mother. It had chosen her knowing that there would be an abortion”.
Love and blessings,
