    Yes, the correct name is a "caul," but does anyone know someone who was "born with a veil?"

    Do you believe in the gifts that are said to come with such a birth?

    Have you witnessed any gifts from someone born with a veil?

    LOL!

    Well, one of my favorite books is one by Tina McElroy Ansa:



    "Baby of the Family (1989) revolves around a child, Lena McPherson, born with a caul, the membrane that surrounds a fetus and sometimes covers a baby's head at birth. A nurse recognizes the sign, according to folklore, of a child with extraordinary spiritual powers, including the ability to see ghosts. The unfolding of this gift is traumatic, and Lena learns to keep her visions private. As she grows up, a series of spirits, including a slave named Rachel and her grandmother who dies during the story, teach Lena about love and the search for self."

    If you haven't read it, you might wanna check it out.

    No problem, Clyde! That book suggestion was also directed to the "at-large" audience, not just you.
