Deborah B's Experience
was 7 or 8 months pregnant with twins. My husband and I knew they were both
girls and had settled on names for them. I was sleeping and dreamed that one of
the twins was speaking to me. She just told me that the other twin (she referred
to her by name) "isn't ready yet." That was the whole experience, but it was
very real. It wasn't possible to tell the age of the child in the dream, but I
felt like I recognized her. When my daughter was born, it seemed that I already
knew her. She looked exactly like the child in the dream, and as she grows, she
still looks exactly like that child. She is 12 now).
