You, try putting the inverse="true" into the InsertionsString side of the relationship.
This is a very common issue that everyone seems to have happen to them. It seems to be more logical that the inverse would be on the one side of a many to one, but to get what we expect, parents getting inserted before their children, requires the inverse="true" to be on the Many side of the relationship.
If you think of it this way, wherever you put the inverse, Hibernate will think, ok, so this is the same relationship that is modeled in the other side, and lets use that mapping as the controlling force of this relationship. So by having it in the Many side, it puts the parent in control of the relationship, since after all it is responsible for creating its children. Unless it is by immaculate conception.
