I haven't experienced this, or any paranormal activity (yet), but my grandfather had informed me of his paranormal experience not long ago, and finding this site helpful I decided to post his story.
I do not really know any specific details about this home, but I assume it is quite old since my grandfather used to live there with his mother and many siblings. Due to the amount of siblings my grandfather had had to sleep on a sofa or an armchair. He had been asleep one night when he was awoken by a soft crying noise, terrified he opened his eyes to see a small crying boy in one of the corners. It didn't seem to possess any obvious demonic features, and it looked like a real boy, (I assume my grandfather would have told me if it did) but I'm very sure my grandfather had just closed his eyes and was too frightened to open them again. (after all, I would have too!)
The strange thing is, it sounded much too real to be a dream, and when he woke up the next morning there was a puddle of water where the "child" had been. My grandfather being rather logical would have told me if there were any windows or rain the previous night, or any other alternative water sources which could have caused it.
He then told me that he had informed a priest about his experience, the priest had told him that it was the devil, and that the devil sometimes takes the form of a crying child. Is this true?
If you need any more specific details, I'll ask my grandfather for more, just comment and ask!
Any help or information regarding the form of the "crying child" would be very much appreciated, since I still ponder about this form. I am a catholic, but I'm very open minded, so don't hesitate to show your opinion! :-)
