Experience description:

About 10 days before all of this happened, I was having awful reoccurring nightmares about my family being cut or hacked up, with my 4 year old being stabbed and I am trying to save him, this dream bothered me because I know from past dreams that when I have them over and over you had better pay attention.

This happened a few blocks from our home. I was shopping, and my daughters school is just a few blocks from our house, her boyfriend would give her a ride home almost every day. Well I am coming home from shopping just as her school lets out, I turn the corner about 3 blocks away from our home just at the very second that Jorge drives away and my daughter is there standing in the middle of the street, they did not see me.

So I drive up to her and ask Why did Jorge drop you off here and not give you a ride all the way to our house? I just knew that something was very wrong, She acted very calm and made up some lame excuse for it, and I told her to get in and we drove home. After we got home I kept getting this 911 feeling and it just got more intense so I confronted my daughter again and said maybe I should call her school to see what's going on.

When I called them and found out that she had missed about 5 days in the past couple of weeks I told her she had better let me know what's going on. She got on the phone and called Jorge over to our house, when he got there they both told me that they went to that clinic that day and they had started the procedure on her.  I cried, "what the hell did they do to you there?" When they told me how far along she was, Jorge was crying I was crying and my daughter looked like she was in shock.

I got the phone number to that clinic from them and called and talked to the woman Dr. who performed the procedure, I said no one told these kids what they would be in for, this is a partial birth abortion! that baby could live if it was born now. Then she got snooty with me and said that these kids are not ready for a family yet, I told her that my daughter has a strong support group in this family and how do we get this undone if they want to keep the child? She said to drive down and they would do it , I said thanks but no thanks.

So I called my Dr. He is my ob-gyn and when they heard what they had performed at such a late date, they would not touch her with a ten foot pole. So I called the emergency room and they said to bring her in. After much talking and crying we drove to the ER and after waiting 5 hours had this thing taken out, it starts the dilation process. So to make a long story short little Jacob was born a few months later. 

I told my daughter and Jorge that he would be a boy on the way to the emergency room to reverse the abortion, almost as if I knew him. And my daughter picked out the name Jacob, so of course I have to look in my name books to see what Jacob means. It means a surplanter one who takes the place of another, steps in there shoes. My daughter did not know that, she just liked the name. I know my Mom helped to bring Jacob here. After all of that, my dreams stopped and it became crystal clear. They work on the other side to help us, to have lost my Mom and first Grandson all in a few months would have been overwhelming. My Daughter and Jorge  are planning to get married, when I asked her after Jacob was born, if she would have changed anything she said no, never.

What about your experience made you think it was contact from your mother?

My mother had just passed away 2 months before, I then started having those nightmares about my family the same dream over and over, that is very unusual for me to have nightmares and very rare to have the same one reoccurring. Then on the day that my daughter goes to SF to have this procedure done, for me to drive around the corner at that exact moment that her boyfriend is driving off and she is left standing in the middle of the street is not a coincidence. If I had been 3 seconds sooner They would have seen me and just proceed to bring her home. If I had been 2 or 3 seconds later, I would not have seen him drop her off, and just presume she was walking home from school with everyone else. I firmly believe that I was (prompted) to be at that place at that exact time. Right after my Mom passed I kept looking and praying for a sign, a dream that she was OK. I thought that she would come to me in a dream and say good-bye. Looking back on all of this, I can see she did come to me but in a much a  more important way to help save her great grandson.

Did you feel a touch or experience any physical contact from the deceased?            Yes

When mom passed, she was not at the care home, I felt her at her and Dads home, and this chill went through me, I knew it was Mom. That was a few hours after she had passed, and we went to pick up my Dad to go to the care home.

Was the touch familiar or unfamiliar?   unfamiliar, or I should say rare. Not the first time.

            Was anything communicated by the touch?  I just knew it was Mom

Is there any possibility what you felt was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience?  no

Did you see the deceased?         Uncertain

There was an orb at her funeral. My sister took the picture, it is about 5 feet above her casket.

Did you smell a distinct smell, scent, fragrance or odor associated with the deceased?      No

Did the deceased give you information you did not previously know?  yes. helped to save Jacob
