Experience description:  

I was in a vehicle with my sister and bro in law, driving through the area we had lived when parents were together, and I was born. No idea where it was other than the village. Each time we drove down a certain street, as we passed a house, I felt someone touch me, and goose bumps raised on my arms. I felt sure it was my dad, and felt comfort, and wrote the address where the contact was occurring.

Later that night when I called my mom, she told me the address where we'd lived.. and yes, that was the one.

I was 6weeks old when we left that house. Never been back until that day. But my dad knew I wanted to find it, and I know he wanted to give me something to comfort me in my grief over losing him, again.
