from Bev Milward
Some years ago, I was expecting my daughter after a long time of trying for a baby. I had the usual four month blood tests to rule out any genetic problems, and was told that there was a 1 in 6 chance that our baby had down syndrome -- for me things weren't looking great, and I was deeply upset and in shock. It was during the period of waiting for the results, that my experience happened.
I was in bed and woke up; but with my eyes still closed (if that makes any sense), and became aware of a light filling the room -- I suppose like a sunny summer's morning. I didn't open my eyes at all, so I saw nothing...and I didn't hear anything; but what I can most definitely say is that I FELT warmth and love (even now I feel very emotional thinking of it), and an overwhelming feeling of 'everything is going to be alright'. I was left with a feeling of reassurance and went back to sleep. I don't know if it was my mum (she had died of cancer in 2000) or an angel, but the message was full of love. The strange thing is that I just accepted it and didn't say anything until I saw my Dad, who started to tell me of his 'strange experience the other night' which was identical to mine!! My daughter is healthy and well, I am happy to say, and I believe I was given a message from God and I feel very privileged to have had this experience.
