This book is a remarkable study containing interviews with young children in which they talked about what it was like before they were conceived, and how they came to choose their parents. As the children talk about "the memories before entering Mommy's tummy", there is clear, guileless narrative that goes beyond imagination and is followed by comments from the mothers that help put the child's story into context.
The children, unprompted, tell why they picked a certain set of parents, and often times, talk about their siblings that went before them or came later. The tone is very sweet and matter of fact, and the children are sometimes surprised that the parents don't know about the things that are so obvious to them. The stories are inspiring and give us a different perspective on the process that occurs before conception and birth.
