Explanation

A “birth lottery” is offered as an example of the sort of element the first word describes. Since a lottery is random, based on chance, you would like your first word to be something like “due to luck,” and that is just what aleatory means. The second word looks to be roughly synonymous with “gifts.”

Dispensations will work there, while encumbrances and piques are both negative.

Aleatory, dispensations.
