Was There A Baby At The Nursing home?


Some years ago in South Carolina,there was a prtite lady,Mrs.V in a Nursing Home.She was sweet and nurturing.She could dress herself and walk unassisted.Her words did not always make sense or follow the thought of the conversation.She carried her pillow around constantly holding it and often singing to it as if it were a baby.
One of the staff nurses attended an Auction or estate sale at a near by community looking for a table.She also saw a little doll dressed in a once white gown and bonnet and thought of Mrs.V.She took it home,cleaned it up,and left it on the bed in Mes.V's room.
Mrs.v was delighted.She repeatedly said "My baby" and wiped tears from her eyes.The pillow was replaced by the baby doll.

Several nights later the night staff heard what sounded like a baby crying in the room.but nothing was found.This same thing happened in the afternoon the following week.It was thought to be cats outside but none could be found.

About a month later, the night nurse heard singing and rocking noises from Mrs.V's room.She sent someone to check and was told it was OK.Mrs.V. was just rocking her baby.The next time when it happened, the nurse went to check.She saw the same thing and it gradually faded away.
You see there are no rocking chairs in the rooms.There was Mrs.V lying in her bed with a crying doll...
