I went to pick up a friend today from her apartment complex, I do this everyday and I have been there more than 40 times. Today, it was raining and I was going very slow through the gate due to the abundant amount of speed bumps in the complex, I looked straight ahead and saw a small child standing on the sidewalk in front of an apartment building with a pink raincoat on. The child was facing sideways and appeared to be looking at something or waiting for someone. I assumed she was waiting for parents. I'm not sure if it was a boy or a girl, I only assume girl because of the pink raincoat. As a matter of fact, I wondered why this child was standing outside by herself in the rain because she couldn't have been more than 4 or 5 based on her size. As I got closer she simply vanished. I stopped in front of the building and looked up the stairway to see if she ran off. She was no where to be seen. I was very startled because I was not expecting this to be the outcome. I was not seeing things, I know what I saw. It was daylight but raining, I was not tired, or anything else wrong with me to where I would be hallucinating. This child simply vanished in front of my eyes. I am one of those people that do believe in the paranormal, only when I have exhausted all means of logical reasoning and am unable to find no evidence of any logical explanation I naturally decided this was something paranormal. Now my question is, why?
I have only had this happen to me one other time in my life and it was almost 30 years ago after my grandfather passed away. I saw a man on the side of the road that looked like my grandfather when he was younger. When I got closer he waved and disappeared.
I could explain to myself why that may have happened after my grandfather passed away but I cannot explain why this child in a pink raincoat was standing in the rain for me to see today. One more experience I can add to my list.
