Mary: I have feelings of pleasure, comfort. . . . My father isn’t aware of my presence but my mother has an inkling. I think they were planning; they wanted to have another baby, so I think they were hoping I would be created. My mother knew pretty soon but not my father.
I feel that when I was conceived I was aware of a lot of things. I don’t know where I learned them but I felt wise, like I knew what I was doing, like I came to that place for a reason.
I felt I had a place to be, a chance to grow and settle in. I felt glad I was conceived, like I chose that place, those people. I needed those people, needed their chemicals, needed to interact with them, to work with them in making some kind of combination to make me come alive.
I thought they were special people who could give me a lot. I felt like I had to go through a lot of work with them before I knew exactly what I was supposed to be doing. I felt like I needed their presence to make me creative, to interact with me, and to bring me into myself. I didn’t know then what it was, but I was excited about it.
