The Motherline by Chantal Bilodeau
Claire, an unborn soul floating in the ether, is anxiously waiting to be born. But not any mother will do — she's determined to be born to Holly, a young lesbian who has no plans of having the necessary heterosexual intercourse to bring Claire into the world. To overcome this problem, Claire strikes a bargain with Holly's Buddhist cat Minou. Grabbing at the chance to build the good karma that will earn him a human rebirth, Minou gives up one of his lives so Claire can come down to earth and win Holly's love.
