In Latvian Mythology
, Dekla is the Goddess
and fortune., especially of children
s, and is said to cradle
newborn children against her breast
She is considered part of a trinity of destiny deities (Latvia's take on the Fates) which includes her two sisters, Laima and Karta. Dekla plays an integral role as the beginning of destiny, while Laima is the planner of destiny. Who knows what Karta does, but I'm sure it's important.
