A Child's Cry


The haunting in my parents' house started when I was thirteen.

I woke up one morning and went to the kitchen to eat breakfast and my mom was sitting, just staring, and the kitchen table. I could sense something was bothering her, so we started talking about what we were going to do that day and eventually she told me what the matter was.

She told me that morning she had gotten up early and was washing clothes in the laundry room. At the back of the laundry room was the dryer and she stood there folding clothes. She said she started feeling sick and could feel someone standing in the doorway behind her. She didn't turn to see who was there but continued folding clothes and then she heard crying, a child's cry. She turned to look thinking it was me or one of my younger brothers up from a bad dream, but there was no one there, and the crying continued.

She said she could look at the exact point the crying was coming from and it started to move away from her, going in the dining room. She followed the crying and it continued to move, out of the dining room and into the living room, from the living room in to the hallway until it faded away.

She was left standing there thinking she was going crazy, with the sick, sinking feeling still fresh in her abdomen. I believed her.

I was shocked she would tell me such a thing, because my mom was always very level headed and never talked of such things, as spirits or ghosts. From then on, my mother and I and my youngest brother would experience many odder, unexplainable things.

The sound of a crying child seens to happen a lot. I've heard a lot of crying baby's and there not be one crying baby in the house but at the times of the noises there had either been a death of the baby in the family or in the house but you said there is more... What else happens?

its interesting but scary at same time... Some of these noises are people who passed on. I never quit figured out why they stay around or what happen. But I have storie like this. I was staying at my friends house which used to be her sister delens house before she passed. Nywho... One night I got up around 12 at night... I was tryna close my eyes but then I heard someone crying soft with breathing coming from dark corner by a room. I tryed to wake up my friend but she would wake up so I ignored it an went to sleep hoping it would bother me.

Thanks for the story, it gave me the chills. There's nothing scarier than child/baby related stories.

Hmm... I asked around to my neighbors if they had known anyone or anything happening on the land around our house and they said all they could think of was that they found a grave of a soldier (don't know which war) on the playground in the neighborhood that is right behind my house.
Nothing about children. But there has been a male presence which I have not yet written about which seemed to be attached to me somehow in my parent's house.

Since the house you lived in was newly constructed, anything residual would likely be tied to the land it stands on, at least to the best of my (little) knowledge.

The answers--if indeed there are any--would lie in finding out what was originally on the site.

For what it's worth, I keep getting the feeling that a child was buried in an unmarked grave.

Blank: I moved into the house when I was 5, and moved out when I was 18. The house was newly built and had been then maybe not even a year when my parents and I moved in. The thing is if it was newly built and the haunting started when I was thirteen, that doesn't make much sense to me.

Girlie: A boby? You mean a baby? We have this plastic like tile stuff in the laundry room so it's not easily removed. And my dad doesn't believe in what my mom, me or my brother hears or see, supernatural. He's just not into that stuff.

Heyy for how many years have you been staying at this house. Try doing some ground work finding out who were staying there before and you'll come to hear a lot of stories. Guess the cry of the child was the start of all the incidents. If your'e little brave you can get an answer all by yourself. Please do post the other incidents and keep us posted of what happens next. Take Care.

Hi, all I can say it looked under the floor boards and see if there is a boby there. Not to scare you or anything but the crying girl could have been an unrested soul, so she tryed to tell your mom where she was so she could rest.
You never know.
