It was summer 1999, 1 year after my high school graduation. Not my first experience but a very memorable and meaningful one for me and my best friend. In the days leading up to a planned get together with my friend I had vision/dream of a blonde haired baby girl on the lap of Lee [my best friend] mother's seat in an airport or office type waiting room. All I could see for sure was them and the lines of chairs in a large windowed area. It seemed they might be going on a trip or waiting for something important, but not in a happy way. More a nervous uncomfortable, anxious way.
When Lee and I were attending the concert which was the planned get together she was ill. I could feel her illness inside me even previous to her explaining what she was experiencing. I didn't mention anything about what I'd experienced or seen in my vision/dream. I told her I felt that she was sick and asked her what was going on, then told her about what I'd felt and experienced. We then laughed and discussed that possibly it was a pregnant sick even though we knew she was on birth control and it was a doubtful possibility.
We'd shared experiences our entire friendship, dreaming alike, seeing things no one else did, and sharing feelings that we felt and knew without saying. Some were positive and joyful others negative and somewhat dark. As we wondered about this, could it be an illness that was ailing her or worse, and if she was pregnant she was drinking and that wasn't safe for a baby. Suddenly a beautiful bright colored monarch butterfly landed on her hand. As we looked at it, it seemed to be looking back as if to say it's okay, things are fine. It was like a relief. It fluttered on her hand for what seemed a while, quite possibly only seconds though, but longer than any regular butterfly would ever stay on a human. 3 days after we found out that she was in fact expecting and it seemed her sick feeling was gone and so was mine.
Within in a few months we found out it was a girl and after she was born it appeared she had very similar features to the child I'd seen with her mother in my vision. Stranger than that Lee had some personal issues that put her daughter in the temporary custody of her mother. During this time Lees mother brought her granddaughter to many appointments at offices in settings similar to what I'd seen. These were custody hearings and doctors appointments, and these were the type of uncomfortable nervous, anxious settings I'd told Lee about. She was always traveling with her as well. It was like I knew she was going to come and be taken away but that it'd work out.
Lee and I had shared many experiences together as children and I feel like that connection was somewhat a psychic experience. Lee has had several more pregnancies since and each one I sensed, whether by feeling it, seeing it, or dreaming it. Very peculiar. I've always wondered whether it was coincidence, a premonition or just that closeness you have with a friend. I'm convinced it to be something because it seems to happen quite frequently in my life and not just with Lee. I have had what I call deja vu about many different people, places, and moments. Now that I'm an adult and not a child with just a runaway imagination I believe more than ever it is for sure and not just coincidence.
