My best friend in NZ has always been a bit psychic (sp?), when we were about 13 or 14 she called me to tell me that her 3 year old niece Amber had drowned in a swimming pool, it was one phone call I will never forget.
15 years ago my friend had her first baby, a girl named Taylor, and I was lucky enough to have booked a holiday so I got there 2 days after the birth. The night after I arrived my friend went into check on Taylor and came back out looking very pale. She said, "I saw Amber next to the cot". We discussed it and came to the conclusion that Amber was simply coming to have a look at her new cousin.
The next morning, my friend thought Taylor didn't look well, and had a slight bluish tinge to her face. So we all dashed off to the hospital, to be told the devastating news that Taylor had a massive hole in her heart. She was in ICU and ended up being sent up to Auckland for an operation, the first of many.
Over the years, my friend has seen Amber by Taylor's bedside many times, and we believe she is Taylor's guardian angel that watches over her.
While Taylor is always going to at risk, I'm happy to say she has turned into a normal precocious hormonal teenager!
