Real Ghost Stories



There was a period in 1995 where a little girl lived in my house. I was laying in bed one morning relaxing before getting up and I heard a small girl's voice next to me say, "Mommy." It was so sweet sounding though that I wasn't afraid. About a month later, my husband of the time was fishing around in the library looking for a pack of cigarettes he had hidden when he heard a little girl ask him, "What are you doing?" Startled, he looked up thinking it was perhaps me but no one was there. This freaked him out and he promptly ran out of the house.

I don't know who this little girl was, why she called me mommy, or where she went shortly after these few incidents. I think sometimes only the ghost knows why or how they are there.

❤ we should delete the ghost words from human mind than we will see the real human ghost who are living around us who are doing criminal activity.

Very touching story. I think the girl lost her parents and was still searching for them and thought you of being her mom. 🤔

My guess would be she is just curious and looks to you as a motherly figure. Maybe she lost hers before her own demise and is still searching? Best of luck to you in figuring it out!

I think the little girl lost her mom and misses her terribly. Maybe you look like her mom. Either way, I don't think she meant any harm. I think she is just lost. And it's true. Only the ghosts themselves know why they are in a place. It's sad how little kids die so early and can't rest in peace. 😐

If you ever had an abortion/miscarrage then this could be your little girl! If not mabye the girl had lost her 'mommy' and died while wanting her due to being lost or something then came back to her house to look for her when she died but most likely her 'mommy' was gone or dead so when she saw you you may have just been there and she recognized you as a responsable female that is most likely motherly. As many others have said look into the history of the house and look into you and your husbands history. Mabye a deseased sibling or relative. There are quite a lot of posibilities so dig deep! Thanks for sharing!

I think that maybe this little girl had lost her mom when she was young and that she died because of her sadness or something like that and maybe you look like her mommy so that 's why.

Like many of people have said, you should check the history of the house if you want to find out who this girl is. Maybe her mother wasn't good to her before she died and she's just looking for a motherly person to call Mommy.

Maybe it means your going to be a mommy? Or that you have a motherly aspect to you? Everyone needs their "mommy" at some point-you were there at the right time.

Did you have an abortion/miscarrige at anytime? This could be why she called you mommy.

The thought of the spirit of a child lost and lonely in the here after is very sad. The thing is, I don't believe the Lord would allow that to happen. He specifically spoke of children in the most enduring way in the bible. I'm certain he would take them to a better place upon death. I do believe that fallen spirits, the unholy ones would use this and other deceitfull ways to confuse us about spiritual matters though.

Maybe she needs help to get to the other side? Maybe you look like her mommy? Ask her if she needs help to go to the light.

I love this one! That was a nice story I'm sure that it might have been scarry but at the same time nice to hear someone call mommy.
Did you ever hear anything else since then?

Nice story!

My assumption is that you had a "drifting spirit" passing by calling for her mommy.

Since she stayed around for a bit longer than just one visit she must have achieved some sort of connection with you probably because you could hear and sense her.

I wonder if she has finally found the one she was looking for, if she has crossed or whether she has found a new family to "adopt" her!

Hi AnneV. I wonder if the little girl used to live in that house or died on that land, did you ever check the history of your house or land? You said it was only two times that you heard her? It seems like it is possible that this ghostly child might have just been passing through since you only heard her twice. Thanks for sharing your story.

For what it's worth, here is my theory. This poor innocent little one has died. Evidently so have her parents. I'm only assuming that. It would appear that she does not know either of these things. She went looking for her Mommy and found you. She kept looking and came upon a man who may very well have looked as if he were ransacking your home, if he were DESPIRATE for that cig. She was just curious, most kids are, and asked because she just wanted to know. There is nothing to fear from her. Well, maybe the ex, cause he couldn't find what HE was looking for. 😆 Thanks for the story.

It may have been that she wanted someone to realize she was there.

maybe she was able to move on to their other side. That is what it sounds like to me. Poor little thing, I hope she fiund her way any how. She will have others to watch out for her and be with her in heaven.

I don't know if this is going to be true or not but my guess is that this child is going to become your new baby, that is if you and your husband are planning to have a family. It's funny how your husband reacted though 😊 Have a good day AnneV

I must say, I think it is kind of funny that your husband got so scared. You really should check out the movie "the others" though. It can really make you think.

If she is still present, perhaps this child is lost, and doesn't have anyone who can help her to the summer realm ("heaven"). I feel the need to express that it might be better for her to get help from people who knows how to communicate with spirits and help them to the other side, as there, she could possibly be reborn, and experience life in this realm fully, or, stay in the summer realm, and grow as a spiritual being. But if she is happy here, perhaps it is best to let her be. She didn't sound directly unhappy. But there is a real possibility that, at this point, she has found help/a way to the other side.

when my daughter was little. she went over her grandma house. and the grandma called and asked me who is carlos. I said I dont no she said tina told her that her friend cant find her parents. and he was lost and need help. so when tina got home I asked her she said this latino boy kept asking her to help find his parents and that he died in a car crash. I no it was true it all made sense when occassionaly she will sing numbers and spanish and she was only four at the time. so I believe children they dont lie they are innocent at that age so I never heard this from her again. and one day I asked is carlos still talks to her. she said no he told me he found his parents.
