I’m very lost and don’t know what to think of everything that has happened in the past 6 months since my nephew has passed. He was 16 years old going to be 17 Aug. 18th of this year. He died from problems with his diabetes. Here is my story…
The day I went to see my nephews body for the first time I had a strange feeling that he wasn’t all the way gone. Even now that I could see him laying there and could feel his cold hands and see how pale his face was. There was no life in his body. I knew in my head he was gone. But my heart wouldn’t take that. (many people don’t the first time seeing your loved ones in that way).
The next day I went to visit him another time. This time I was by myself and talked to him telling him about my daughter that he hadn’t gotten to meet and that his father (my brother) loved him a lot and he would be very missed and I prayed he was in a better place and that he could have all the sugar and as much food and anything he ever wanted.
The day my nephew was buried I didn’t have the feeling that he was gone (some would say it was because I couldn’t let go) but I learned later the next week it was not the case. My brother and sister-n-law went back to their home out of the state and we had started to cope with the thought my nephew was gone. I had come home and got on the computer and finally went through my emails that I hadn’t in over a week and went to bed shortly after.
I had my first dream that scared me which at 21 years old you don’t get many scary dreams anymore. It was of my nephew showing me a grave yard (not the one he was buried in) with white candles leading our way and it was very dark and he took me into a building and took me to show me somebody with a lot of flowers and pictures and looked at me and told me to be careful. (till this day I don’t know who he was talking about or who it was that he showed me).
The next night got somewhat stranger. My nephew took me to my brothers house in s.c. a house that I was only at 2 times and showed me my brother hugging my sister-n-law and my brother saying he blamed himself and my nephew walked over and put his arms around both of them and looked at me and said “tell my dad I love him and not to blame himself.” I woke up and could tell that I had been crying.
A few days passed as I tried to tell my brother what had happened in my dream and thoughT of all the things that my brother could tell me and none were good. Through the days I didn’t tell my brother or anyone what had happened in my dream. My nephew wasn’t in my dreams. I told my sister n law finally after the few days had passed and I had gone through all the bad things I could hear come from my brother. My sister-n-law started to cry when I told her what my dream was and what my nephew (her step-son who she saw as her own) had shown me and told me.
My sister-n-law told me that her and my brother were just talking a few hours ago from when I called and my brother had just said those words to her. As shocked as I was I was really freaked out.
After I told my sister-n-law it took a few nights till my nephew reappeared into my dreams. This time he took me to a bridge and while going to the bridge we were talking and I was telling him about my daughter that he hadn’t gotten to meet. When we got to the bridge we could only go half way. He told me that he could cross the bridge. For some reason my dream fast forwarded and I had my daughter and was taking her to meet my nephew and when I got back to the bridge the bridge wasn’t even there all the building supplies were there to build it but no bridge. I woke up and was very confused and didn’t know how to explain what had happened. I went on through the day thinking about what he could have meant and why could he not cross the bridge.
That night he came into my dream for only a short time telling me that I didn’t need to worry about my daughter that he had gotten to meet her that day and that he would prove that he was not lieing to me that my daughter would be in her playroom the next day and that she would shut the door and he would be talking to her and not to be afraid it was only him and after he was done talking and spending time with her the she would bang on the door to come out (at this time she NEVER closed doors nor really talked while playing).
The next day she went into her play room and for while the door was open so not letting what my nephew told me in my dream get to me I went on about my day cleaning and cooking and checking on my daughter every so offen. Around 3 I had went to check in on my daughter and the door was closed and I could hear her talking and laughing. Remembering what my nephew had told me I left her alone and came back about 5 minutes later. As I started to walk off I heard her say “bye bye” and a few seconds latter started to bang on the door to come out. (yes I was very freaked out) I called and told my sister-n-law I don’t member what she had told me at the time but it was very helpful in calming me at that time. (I’ve had many other dreams but I cant recall what they had to do with)
After that my nephew didn’t come around for about a week but different things were happening in my house. I ignored it and went on I thought it was my nephew just playing tricks as he loved to scare people and trick on people. Soon things calmed down somewhat. I went to the doctor on Aug. 17th, a day before my nephew would have been 17 years old, and found out that I was having another child and my due date is the end of march beginning of April. My nephew passed away on march 25th 2010. Freaky on how things happen. But this is something I cant explain to why my nephew came to me and not anybody else. Finding out that I’m having another child in the time frame my nephew passed away.
