Why do Black Cats find Me?

I'll start with the first black cat in our new home. Bootsy was found at an auction by my toddler at the time. No one lived at the house so we brought her home. She was just a lil black kitten. She grew up and one day left us, she just looked back at me and as if to say goodbye,kept walking and never came home.
One week later, we again found another black cat! Another Kitten. Blacky only lived a short while till she got out and was hit by a car. It was in the morning sending my son to school he saw her on the road and cried. I buried her in our backyard.
That day the phone rang and a friend had been given a black kitten she could not keep and had not known ours was killed, she asked if we could take her and I of course said yes!! "Blacky#2" was taken to the vet, he was sick. We had him for a few weeks and one day in the morning AGAIN, he was dead on my backporch, we buried him out in the yard. That day I was sad and was driving home through the woods and low and behold, on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere was a small black kitten! He had no tail and a grey sister!
It took me over 1hr. to get the ferile kittens into my car, with lot's of scratches. They were wild and would not come near the house. Over a few weeks I had them laying on my lap in the living room! Diablo, named (because of his attack on me when I found him) lived with us for about 6mnths.
This morning Diablo was killed by a car my son and husband found him while waiting for school bus. I cried all day after burying him. One hour ago the same day, my son screamed come here and my husband found a black female!I'll call her MAJIC!!I never saw a correlation until tonight, what are the chances of a beloved pet dying so horribly and instantly having it replaced? I even asked my husband about our new MAJIC, (he's really not a cat lover)if he brought it home and He said absolutely not.I know it wasn't him, but why and how is this black cat phenom.. happening?
I don't think it's a coincidence. Folklore claims a lot of thing, but I sure would love to know the truth.....We live in the country and I realize there is an abundance of cats, but I do know this is a good thing, that I will embrace! This morning I was down to four and tonight I'm back at FIVE! My prayers were answered!!
