Grieving Mother Came To Her Son’s Grave. She Received A "Sign" From Above

Date August 17, 2018

What happens to us when we die? At some point each of us starts to wonder, but it still remains one of the greatest mysteries of mankind.

Currently, there are many theories, but there is no way to know for sure. We tend to associate certain events in our life with our religious views and opinions, but we won’t learn the answer to this question until our life comes to an end.

When one of the relatives passes away, especially if it happens in an unexpected way, we tend to look for signs that our relatives are still with us to help us deal with sorrow.

These signs are sometimes particularly hard to write off as a coincidence, and people start truly wondering if it wasn’t their deceased close one trying to reach out to them.

On April 1, 2017, when Marie Robinson from Waterlooville, England, came to her son’s grave, something truly amazing happened.

Marie’s son Jack died three years ago of a brain tumor. He was only four years old. This tragic event became a real test for the family, and especially his twin brother Liam.

On an anniversary of her son's death, Marie decided to visit his grave. Before leaving the car, the woman called out to the boy:

Please, Jack, show mummy a sign.

At the gravestone Marie got overwhelmed with emotions - she couldn’t believe that her little boy had been gone for so long. But then something wonderful happened: A tiny robin flew up to the woman and landed on her.

This robin kept flying around and went to sit on my leg, it would not leave me alone. He didn't seem scared at all. Then he came and sat on the palm of my hand. He was so relaxed sitting there. He kept looking at me directly in my face and at one point he landed on my shoulder and nibbled me a couple of times.

In addition to the bird’s similar name, the family, in particular, the twins, has always had a special attitude towards robins.

When Jack and Liam were in a pushchair we would calm them down by going out robin spotting. We always used to shout out if we saw one in the park.

The woman also said that after Jack's death she started meeting these birds every now and then. A few months after the funeral, she wrote on her Facebook page:

I was in the garden, where Jack used to spend time, and when I turned my head I saw a charming tiny robin on the fence watching me.

Marie filmed the mysterious encounter at the cemetery and later posted on social networks. She signed the video.

I can’t believe I went to visit my precious boy, I sat down next to his grave, and suddenly it happened, I just could not stop crying, I took it as a sign from Jack.

There are many beliefs about the appearance of robins, and most of them are quite encouraging.

Regardless of how you feel about this phenomenon, you will agree that it was really peculiar. Such a seemingly common encounter sometimes makes us think about things that lie beyond our understanding.
