    Wow. In the article, the mom says her water never actually broke. If the baby was born with the amniotic membrane intact, or 'born in the caul', superstition says those babies possess second sight & other supernatural abilites.

    I am extremely envious. What a completely awesome story that would be to tell around the ouija board on a crisp Samhain eve.

    Seriously though, it must have been terrifying for the poor mother. Glad she and baby got through it okay.

    Poor old Molly. I hope the Rev. Spencer met his just deserts on the other side.

    I'm a pagan at heart, so I'm just eating this story up. Some way, some how, I would have had to work "Molly" into the baby's name, if it had been me. lol

    I was one of those babies, and most of my family (and a lot of friends) believe it's true. I personally think I'm just more perceptive and intuitive than most of the people I know.
