True Ghost Story: Pick Me Up

Location: Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

The following report was sent into our website on June 16, 2011:

“I am the type of person who doesn’t give a whole lot of thought about spirits visiting us and am really not sure even to this day if I really believe in them anyway, but this is my story.

After my wife and I had my son some strange things happened. Sometimes his toys, which were battery powered, would play sound by themselves. Not all the time but only some times and it would be more than just one toy. I didn’t let this get to me and shrugged it off as the batteries must be getting low but knowing full well that they were new and it was not always the same toy like I said earlier.

The thing that really changed my opinion was when one day early in the year my wife and I, along with my son, were in the living room and we were talking as my son rode his big wheel around in circles on the floor. At one point he stopped by the doorway into the living room and looked up for a few seconds, got off his big wheel and walked a foot over to the doorway and stopped, looked up like something was there and put his arms out as if to say pick me up. My wife and I looked at each other and she looked scared and I said to her did you see that? She replied yes and we were a little freaked out. He was only 2 and a half years old at the time and had a name for the whatever he saw but I cant recall what it was as this time. But it has made me think a little more seriously about spirits and the after life.”
