This is something I've thought about lately. I was adopted as an infant, and have spent my life with the family which has adopted me, along with two
other siblings, also adopted. I believe in reincarnation, and that our souls go through an almost infinite number of lifetimes. I also tend to
believe, that before we are reincarnated during our present lifetime,we have a purpose, or task to complete, or attempt to achieve, during our time
So, my question is, can being adopted in the first week of your life, change, and essentially screw up your life plan, or more specifically, the plan
which was put together before appearing on this earth at present? Now, if you don't believe in reincarnation, this thread probably won't mean a whole
lot to you. But if you do believe in reincarnation, and that each lifetime has a purpose, how would adoption effect that?
One constant, between myself, and my siblings, all of whom are adopted, is that we feel somewhat lost, and disconnected. We talk openly about it, and
about the fact we have always felt somewhat like we don't belong, or are lost souls. Yet, I've never come across this with someone who isn't, or
hasn't been adopted. Is there anyone else who is adopted, who also feels this pattern of feeling lost? It's as if the chemistry many families have, is
missing from ours, and always has, even though I grew up in a loving household.
Any thoughts would be appreciated, as I know many on ATS either believe in reincarnation, or are interested in it. I have yet to read a comment on ATS
on how adoption, especially very early in life, might have an effect on reincarnation.
