On her son's third death anniversary, a mother constantly got emotional while thinking about him, so she visited his grave. Little did she know she would get an unbelievable sign that would help her feel his presence.


Witnessing the death of one's child is one of the most traumatic experiences for a person. Parents spend their lives trying to provide the best for their children, and they can never imagine living without their little ones.

However, life doesn't usually go as planned. Sometimes, things take a different turn, and parents have to deal with the loss of their child. At first, it isn't easy, but parents learn to live without their children with time. The woman in today's story also lost her child and was later surprised to get a sign from her deceased son.

Marie Robinson tied the knot with her husband, Terrence, and lived happily with her children in Hampshire, England. The couple had three daughters and were over the moon after welcoming their twin sons, Jack and Liam, in July 2009.

Marie and Terrence had planned to live a happy life with their children, but fate had other plans in store for them. They had no idea that they would have to say goodbye to one of their children soon.

One day in 2014, Jack started showing unusual symptoms, so he was rushed to the hospital. After the doctors ran tests on him, they diagnosed 4-year-old Jack with stage four brain cancer.

Little Jack wanted to stay with his parents longer, but he couldn't fight his illness and passed away on April 1, 2014. Marie and Terrence were horrified to see their beloved son lying lifeless, but there was not much they could do.


Suddenly, a robin flying near Jack's tombstone caught her attention.

As years passed by, Marie and Terrence accepted the fact that they wouldn't see Jack ever again. However, he always remained alive in their memories.



Exactly three years after Jack's unfortunate demise, on April 1, 2017, Marie felt emotional thinking about her little one. His death had left a void in her life that no one else could fill.

It felt like a regular Saturday morning, but Marie wanted to make it memorable. While driving to work, she thought of visiting her son after work and said aloud:

"Jack, please show Mommy a sign!"

As Marie walked toward the cemetery, she wished that Jack would give her a sign to help her feel his presence. Little did she know that her wish would soon come true.



Marie walked towards Jack's grave and sat on the grass beside it with a heavy heart. All she could think of were the good days she had spent with her little one. Suddenly, a robin flying near Jack's tombstone caught her attention. She recalled:

"With that a little robin kept flying around me trying to land on me, eventually landing on my foot - he didn't seem scared at all."

Then, the robin flew and sat on another tombstone, so Marie quickly took out her phone to record a video. Moments later, the bird strangely landed on her hand. Marie was shocked because the robin looked directly into her eyes.

While Marie was still shocked to see the robin's unusual behavior, she said it quickly landed on her shoulder and nibbled on her a few times. She recounted:


"I went totally numb when the robin flew to me."

The grieving mother considered this a sign from her late son. She posted a video of the robin on Facebook and told everyone she couldn't believe what had happened.

Marie had a reason for considering the robin's strange behavior as a sign from Jack. She revealed that when the twins were little, she used to take them outside, and they loved watching robins. She recalled:

"After Jack passed, whenever we were out on trips or on holiday, we would always come across a robin and we would say, 'hello Jack.'"

The robin's strange behavior left Marie in tears because she could feel Jack's presence through that little bird. She and her children believed robins were special.

Do you believe people who have passed away watch their family from above? Do you think what Marie experienced was a sign from Jack?
