It would take a good-sized chapter of a book to set out the traditional Druid vision of reincarnation and the various forces shaping it, of which the consequences of actions in previous lives -- what Eastern traditions call karma, and Western occultism calls fate -- are part.

The thing to keep in mind when dealing with individual cases, such as a person with a congenital disability, is that karma is subtle and very specific. There's no one-size-fits-all answer to questions like "why was person X born with this disability?" or "why do the other members of X's family have to cope with this disability?" It's always specific to the souls in question, and has to do partly with their actions in previous lives, and partly with the striving of each individual soul toward its own destiny.
