Child senses her aborted siblings?

Teresa Tomeo told the following story, relate to her by Dr. Philip Ney, a psychologist:

“Similarly, there are psychological effects on siblings of aborted children. Dr. Philip Ney, a Canadian psychologist, has studied these effects for decades. He tells a story of a woman who came to him for counseling for her six-year-old child who was having nightmares, wetting the bed, and suffering from separation anxiety. Dr. Ney, in his interview with the mother, asked her about any pregnancy losses. She told him about two abortions that she had prior to giving birth to this child. Then in a separate interview with the child, Dr. Ney asked the child to draw a picture of her family. She was an only child, and yet she drew a picture with her mom, dad, brother, sister, and herself. She had a sense of the missing siblings.”

This seems far-fetched to me, it’s true that children can be remarkably perceptive, but this borders on paranormal. I can’t help but be skeptical, but I’m including the story here and readers can make their own decision as to what they think of it.
