My second born is a very special little boy indeed.  But I am not just saying that.  I mean it.  There is a mystery that happened at his birth.

When I was in the hospital in labormy brother calls me and tells me that my grandfather "pappy" was in the hospital and was in a coma.

I was praying that he would hold on until got out of the hospital so that I could make the 4 hour drive to see him one more time.

I was always very close to my pappy and he is the only one that was left alive.  Well after I had my son and was recovering.  The next day still in the hospital, My brother calls me.  He said has anyone told you about pappy yet? No. Well he died. I am thinking he died that morning since it was afternoon.  So I asked him.  He said no he died yesterday at 7 am.  The exact day and time that my son was born. 

I have always thought that my pappy was making room for my son in the world and now I get to see my pappy everyday since my second born looks alot like him.,  I name my son after him.

Jontell.  So what do you think?  A coincidence or is it true that for every person that dies a new is born to replace them?

I believe that when a person dies a child is born.

Nov. 4, 2010 at 12:17 PM Now that you mention it...yes.......Here is my story. My child was born July 12, 1993. She was a Down Syndrome baby, five weeks early and in the NICU for 11 days...I called my mother, in PA (I'm in Texas) and in our conversation she told me that a great friend of ours across the road from her had died around this time... My mind was making connections, even in my sad, depressed state....I know that my former neighbor was having a part in the prayer for my daughter's healing. (She had an atrial-septal defect...the hole closed in a surgery) I was led to tell my neighbor's widow, who was a Christian, that I know her husband was intervening for my little girl. This gave her comfort....There are many things in my life-religious-that are not merely coincidences-but whose explanations can only be that there is a God and the Holy Spirit does indeed exist.....

Thank you for sharing your story Veronica.  This son happens to be the same one that has epilepsy.
