Almost every creature on planet earth has to sleep in order to rest, rejuvenate and wake up fresh everyday so that they have enough energy to do what they need to do to survive. Many of us don’t realize it, but a human who lives a life-span of 75 years will spend 25 of those years sleeping! That is 9,125 days spent in deep slumber over the course of an average persons lifetime.

Although sleep can be amazing, many people suffer from insomnia or inability to fall asleep, sleep apnea which is the inability to breathe while sleeping and others sleep talk and sleep walk. Many of us don’t even realize we do these things because we are asleep when they are happening!

This brings us to today’s story which features a girl who would wake up in the morning with strange and mysterious bruising on different parts of her body. Initially this nighttime bruising would only occur sporadically, so her parents didn’t really think too much of it. Then as days turned into months and months into years, the bruising she would wake up to was getting worse and worse.

Not only were the bruises bigger and more visible, but it was occurring much more often than before. Her parents started to become concerned, but still weren’t totally panicking and sent her off to a sleep away camp. While she was at camp the bruising continued and because it was summer, she was wearing short sleeves and shorts so this bruising was becoming visible to campers and staff alike. The staff reported it to the proper authorities and her parents were really beginning to freak out.

They spoke to a few of their friends and thought maybe she just had an iron deficiency that was causing these strange and mysterious bruises. They made her an appointment to see a doctor to examine the bruises, give her a full check up and try to get to the bottom of this mystery!

Unfortunately, before her doctors appointment, child services showed up to their house because of the report that the staff at the summer camp gave. People started thinking maybe the parents had something to do with this! However her mom and dad knew for certain they obviously had nothing to do with it, but things were beginning to look grim for them.

The social services representative interviewed the girl and she said her parents definitely had nothing to do with this. She just kept waking up each morning with this odd bruising. The social worker was made aware that she an upcoming doctors appointment to try to determine the source of the bruising and how to treat it. With this, the social worker decided to hold off on the case until they came back with doctors findings.

The doctor ran all the appropriate tests, examined the bruises and did a full body work up. All the testing came back negative, meaning she had no underlying health issues and was otherwise a very healthy young girl. Her parents were relieved that she was healthy, however the bruising continued and the social workers we’re now putting more pressure on them.

The parents finally realized the only way they would know for sure what was going on was to buy a video camera and set it up in her room to see what the heck was really going on here! That night her dad placed the camera in a spot that would give them full view of their sleeping child, turned on the record button and they went to sleep until the morning.

The next day they woke up, and again there was no bruising on the girl. They immediately go the video camera and began reviewing every minute of the night to try to finally unravel this mystery! What they saw frightened them to the core of their soul. Their daughter, while sleeping would crawl, however this wasn’t a normal crawl. She was somehow managing to crawl upside-down and backwards!

It honestly looked exactly like the classic horror movie the Exorcist! Was she possessed? Did she need a priest to do an exorcism? Most likely not! They showed their findings to social services who watched the footage and closed their case against the parents. They then referred her to a sleep specialist who hopefully would figure out a way to stop this strange sleep behavior from happening! Thankfully the sleep specialist had many techniques and slowly the girls strange sleep behavior and bruising began to diminish.

Mother Heard Strange Sounds On Baby Monitor. She Sprints Into Room and Sees Baby Is Not Alone!

Some people dream of being a mother their whole life.  Ever since Bernita Roger’s was a little girl she had looked forward to the day when she’d have children of her own to raise.  After marrying her high school sweetheart Roy, the two set out to become parents. However, the couple struggled and their dreams of starting a family were crushed after Bernita suffered a series of miscarriages.  

After all the heartbreak Bernita set aside her plans of being pregnant.  She decided that for the time being she would adopt, not a baby but instead a pet.  Feeling depressed, she just knew that having a furry animal companion was what she needed in her life and was set to go look a puppy at the local shelter.

Before she could even go to the animal rescue center fate stepped in.  Bernita was out in her garden one day when a black cat appeared and started to rub against her legs.  The friendly feline was a stray but not for long because she fell in love with the kitty and adopted him on the spot.  She brought the cat inside and ended up naming him Midnight after his shiny black coat.

Soon after Midnight had joined the Rodgers family Bernita and Roy learned that she was pregnant again.  The unplanned pregnancy was a blessing and nine months later a healthy baby girl named Stacey was born. When Midnight first met the new baby it was love at first sight and he was always close by.

The new parents were extremely protective of their little miracle baby and watched over her closely.  When Stacey was just 6 weeks old she suddenly became ill and after checking her out a pediatrician told Bernita it was just a common cold.  She took her baby home and had put her down for a nap when Midnight suddenly started acting very strange. He kept pawing at her legs and seemed to be trying in vain to get her attention, but she brushed him off thinking not much of it.  

Midnight ran away and moments later she heard him screeching and crying over the baby monitor.  His strange moans sounded terrible and scared Bernita who jumped up and quickly ran to the baby’s room.  When she got there, she found the cat near the crib and when she looked in to check on Stacey, she noticed something was terribly wrong.  The baby was struggling to breathe and starting to turn blue.

Bernita and Roy rushed baby Stacey to the hospital and because of their quick action doctors were able to save her after she went into full respiratory failure.  If not for Midnight’s insistent crying alerting them to the dire situation, she may not have been so lucky.

Midnight’s story was shared on YouTube and it brought a lot of media attention and interest.  Even Oprah Winfrey contacted the couple and they made an appearance on her show. As for Midnight, he and Stacey are inseparable, they’re each other’s best friend, and he’s always by her side.

Mother’s Twin Babies Were Somehow Born Different Colors! 20 Years Later THIS Is How They Look Now!

Having children is probably the most fulfilling life event for any adult living on earth. That incredible moment of bringing new life into the world and starting a new family is absolutely amazing. For anyone who has experienced birthing a child or being a parent of a new baby can attest to this fact. Almost immediately upon bringing a child into the world, you’re entire life paradigm changes from caring about yourself first and foremost to now caring for your child above everything and anything else including yourself!

In today’s interesting story we feature a Married couple named Donna and Vince Alymer from Gloucester, England. Donna is 45 years old and her hubby Vince is 55 years old. Donna works at a warehouse full time while Vincent works as a scaffolder. This couple has a beautiful family of 3 amazing kids but they would soon find out that Donna would be pregnant again at age 45! At first they were a bit taken a back by the big news of the pregnancy but after that initial shock wore off they became super excited about the new little angel who would be added to their already amazing family.

They went to get an ultrasound hoping to get the good news that the baby looked and sounded healthy and possibly they may even be able to find out the gender of soon-to-be baby. While the ultrasound was in process and the doctor was examining Donna they were pretty stunned to find out they were going to have twins!

They went to get an ultrasound hoping to get the good news that the baby looked and sounded healthy and possibly they may even be able to find out the gender of soon-to-be baby. While the ultrasound was in process and the doctor was examining Donna they were pretty stunned to find out they were going to have twins! Also on top of that they were given more amazing news that both babies looked perfectly healthy and the pregnancy looked like it was going to run smooth without a problem.

They got home and told their 3 children George, China and Jordan that they were about to have not 1 but 2 new little siblings. The children were so excited while mom and dad were a tad nervous but at the end of the day realized that these new twins were a complete blessing and they were so thankful.

It was a beautiful sunny but chilly day on January 16, 1997 when mama gave birth to her fraternal twin baby girls. The birth went very smooth and both babies came out healthy. They all breathed a sigh of relief after knowing they were very healthy with no underlying health conditions which can be an issue with mom’s who give birth in their late 40’s.  The doctors brought the babies in for mom and dad to meet them and make their first impressions….

They were a bit taken a back because the fraternal twins couldn’t look more different than they did. The first baby girl named Lucy was very fair skinned, had bright red hair and blue eyes. The second baby girl named Maria was the exact opposite with a dark complexion, dark hair and brown eyes. If a stranger were to set eyes on the two baby girls it would be unimaginable to even think they were related let alone fraternal twins!

Either way the family didn’t care how different they looked, they were both little angels and a blessing no matter what other people thought of them.

Mother Spots Teens Shoes On The Front Deck. But Then The Unexpected Truth Hits Her Squarely In The Face!

It had been a long day of running around doing errands when Heather Duckworth finally got home. As she walked up the steps on her front porch, she was immediately greeted by the sight of children’s shoes strewn about haphazardly in a pile by the front door. A wave of emotions washed over her as she thought about what all the shoes meant.

The mother of four snapped a quick picture and later wrote on her blog that the pile of shoes meant that her kids were home and their friends were over. They were inside hanging out either listening to music, playing video games or air hockey, watching shows, and most likely eating all her food! However, they also symbolized so much more than the obvious.

Those shoes represented the memories and realization that this would be the last summer before her oldest children went off to college. After 18 years of raising them, protecting and making sure they were safe, and teaching them the ways of the world, they were moving out. As Heather thought back to all the years that had passed by, the memories came flooding back. She felt nostalgic and sentimental, happy and sad, worried but hopeful.

Rather than get stuck on the overwhelming feelings of loss she had towards her children moving out, Heather chose to view the bittersweet moment as a sign that she should be thankful for the present. She knew she should be grateful for having such great kids who were going places and to enjoy her time with them while she could. She wrote that she simply wants to live in the moment and be happy, which is what her children would want her to do.

She Sold Her Dead Baby’s Bed But The Person Who Purchased It Sent It Back 3 Days Later and Says Look Inside The Trunk!

image via – youtube.com

Everyday when we go out to work, run errands, get food exc. we brush shoulders with many strangers all day. A lot of the time we just walk past, don’t think twice and continue on with our own day. What we don’t usually think about is how each of these people has their own story of trials, tribulations and triumphs and we never really know how someone is actually feeling even if they are sitting right beside us.

Sometimes, it is nice to just go out how we usually do but at the same time try to pay it forward and do good deeds throughout the day for your friends, family and even total strangers. You  really never know if your one random good day could completely change the trajectory of somebody else’s life. Also, if you can’t find anybody who needs help just try to be more kind to each person you meet everyday and you will be pleasantly surprised by its positive effects.

This brings us to todays story which features a new Mom named Valerie Watts from Cokato, Minnesota. She had been pregnant for over 8 months with little to no complications. She was so unbelievably excited for the birth of her first son. Then when the 9th month began, she woke up and couldn’t feel her baby moving inside her womb how he had been for months. Her motherly instincts quickly kicked in as she know something was seriously wrong.

She went directly to her doctor and got all the necessary tests done. Then she got the worst news any soon-to-be mom could ever receive. Her doctor told her that her baby boy had died! Somehow the umbilical chord got squeezed and nothing could come in or out. His oxygen and nutrients had been completely cut off and there was no way the soon-to-be infant could’ve survived. Even though she knew what had happened she still went through with the birth as he came out a ‘still born.’ Her heartbreak and sadness truly can’t be put into words. She was completely crushed and broken into a million pieces over the tragic loss.

Because the tragedy happened so late in the 9th month of her pregnancy, the entire house had been baby proofed, his nursery was all set up with stuffed animals, dressers, clothes, fresh new paint of coat on the wall and of course the crib he was supposed to sleep in. Now on top of dealing with the loss, she had to figure out what she was going do with all the things she had bought for his arrival.

For an entire year the nursery was untouched and mom had to walk past the room everyday, which would was obviously extremely hard on her even after she had come to terms with the loss of her son.  Finally she just couldn’t bear to look at the untouched nursery anymore, set up a yard sale, got all the stuff out on the front lawn and began selling all of the stuff.  The hardest thing for her to part with was the crib, which to her truly embodied and symbolized what could’ve been if tragedy hadn’t struck.

At the yard sale, a guy named Gerald and his wife saw the crib and wanted to purchase it. After they agreed on a price, Valerie with a broken heart sold them the crib and in turn the last ‘physical’ memory of her dead son. She had explained to Gerald’s wife the whole back story of everything that happened, and his wife being the empath that she was could help but feel heart broken as well.

His wife told Gerald what Valerie had said to her and Gerald was pretty much stunned. He had figured Valerie was just selling off used stuff that her kid’s had outgrown. It was at this exact moment that Gerald decided he would return the crib a few days later but with a very special surprise….
