I was grateful to receive many ‘piggyback’ validations from my son Morgan on June 20th when Daisy Mae Moore did a Gallery Reading for Helping Parents Heal. It happened toward the end of the meeting when we were about to we were about to wrap up and say goodbye.
Daisy saw a dragon and wanted to know if anyone identified with a fire-breathing dragon. The night before, I had posted a picture on Instagram of the dragon in our front yard that my husband gave me for my birthday a few years earlier in honor of Morgan. He was born in 1988, the Chinese Year of the Dragon, and his room was filled items from China, notably dragons.
Daisy also mentioned Inverness and Loch Ness. I had just published our July 2023 Helping Parents Heal Newsletter with a picture of our Helping Parents Heal - UK Affiliate Leader, Terri MacDonald, and our Helping Parents Heal Connecting with our Loved Ones Co-Affiliate Leader, Mary Bertun, who met in Inverness. I had asked Mary to contact Terri a few days earlier. It was so exciting that these two outstanding Affiliate Leaders had gotten together!
At that point, I was sure that Morgan was coming through. At the same time, Irene noticed in the chat box that Jodee Watelet's son had a Dragon tattoo on his chest, so Daisy asked to call on her. I am always thrilled to have other parents connect with their children, since I have had plenty of validations from Morgan. However, Morgan continued to send me signs!
Daisy mentioned a 'J' name; Morgan's middle name is James, as well as his Grandfather and many cousins, and I just recently found out that Morgan's great-great-grandfather was named James.
Daisy then said that she saw the month of October and asked why. Morgan passed altitude sickness at the Base Camp of Mt Everest in Tibet on October 20th, 2009.
Daisy asked if 2001 meant anything, and 2001 was the year that we moved to Arizona from Chapel Hill, NC. It was the start of a new adventure for Morgan, his sister, and all of us.
Daisy also asked if his passing was 'expected.' She spoke about a ‘premonition’ with Jodee. Although no one could ever imagine that one of their children might pass, something very unsettling happened the day before Morgan left to study abroad for a second time in China. Morgan and I were packing his enormous suitcase, stuffing it with enough clothes and sneakers to last for a semester. Suddenly, he got a faraway look in his eyes. He turned to me and said, "I don't think I will be coming home from China this time." This statement from Morgan was disturbing, and I of course told him that he didn't need to go to China again; he already had plenty of credits through the University of Arizona. Morgan responded: "Don't worry, Mom. I'll be fine."
What Morgan said that day was most certainly a premonition. Our beautiful son passed of altitude sickness at the Base Camp of Mt Everest in Tibet less than two months later.
Daisy said, "I don't know why I have got to say 'parrot' to you; do you live with a parrot?"
Jodee couldn't take this, but we had a Cockatiel named Bisou (kiss in French) who was nine years old when Morgan transitioned in 2009. Bisou lived to be 23 years old and just passed a few months ago. I was sure Morgan was letting us know that he now has Bisou and is caring for him. He is sitting on my shoulder in the photo above, a few days before his passing.
Thank you, Morgan and Daisy, for the beautiful validations! And it is amazing how the signs from our children seem to piggyback so that a maximum number of parents receive messages. They are an excellent team!
