This account happened to my mother almost right after I was born. This story takes place in a small town a bit south of Fort Wayne, Indiana.
I had just been born a few hours before and my mother was finally getting some sleep, myself in the little cart they normally put newborns in beside her. As my mother tells me, she woke up hearing a voice. She claims it was clear as day, saying "You'll be with us soon enough." As she turned to check on me, being worried someone had gotten into the room (I'm her first born and she was young when she gave birth to me), she saw a woman, plump, round, with beautiful reddish hair sitting on the opposite side of where I should have been and she was holding me in her arms. My mother claims she sat there, smiling down upon me and repeating the same line, "You'll be with us soon enough."
Naturally, her newfound motherly instincts kicked in and she yelled at the woman to get out and to leave me alone. This is where it gets strange. As my mother tells me, the woman looked up at her and smiled after being yelled at by my mother (who can be very intimidating). The she stood up, carried me to my little incubator/crib and walked out of the room.
The next day, my mother asked the nurses who had been allowed into the room and why. The woman who was working the desk said that no one had come in nor had anyone gone out that night, which worried her a bit. Although she says that she didn't get a negative vibe from whoever it was in the room that night.
A while later, while my mother and father were at a family get-together of my father's, the whole family was sitting around watching old family movies, when all of a sudden my mother spotted the same woman from the hospital there in the video. She asked my father to rewind it and pointed her out to him.
"Who is that?" She asked my father. He went on to explain that that was my great-grandma and that she had passed years before my birth. My mother told him what she experienced that night when I was born and then realized what it all meant.
I personally believe I have a guardian angel looking after me, and I believe that she and my great-grandfather are looking forward to when I get to meet them in the afterlife. What do you all think?
I hope you guys enjoyed my first post. There will be more to come.
