Hello all, been a long time lurker/member and like most, situations in my past have me looking for answers. I spend a good bit of time here just
reading, enjoying, and learning. But I think it's time I toss my hat in to the ring and hopefully get some answers or validation. Now before I start,
I would like to say even though I have had a interesting past that involved growing up in a ~200 year old haunted farm house in Loudonville NY(among
other things), I am actually a healthy skeptic and even try to rationalize what I am 100% certain to be not rational per see. Most, if not all of my
first hand paranormal expierences happened in bulk before I was 15 save for a perticular situation that lingered on till I was 22. And now as a 37
year old, what I remember is still burned in my brain. Yet, after so much time has passed, I cant help but feel a conflicting need to validate and
disprove at the same time. Ultimately, I am looking for the truth so I hope you can appreciate the fact that what I am about to share is 100%
factual, not embellished in the slightest, and I am hoping someone could shed some light with what it may have been I actually saw here. So, without
Back in 1989 I was a 15 year old 'jock', with a normal middle class family living in a normal suburban middle class neighborhood. I remember it
being Fall time because there were wet leaves all over and the crisp fall air is still fresh in my mind. I had just finnished hanging out at a
friends house probablly 15 houses down the road from mine. And it must of been about 7'ish as it was still somewhat light out but the street lights
were just starting to come on. The neighborhood I lived in was a smallish development with about ~100 homes built in the mid 1940's. Everyone knew
everyone, and traffic was light due to it being a dead end road.
So, as I was walking home I noticed something scurry out of the bushes on the left side of the road. It moved rather quickly and in a odd wiggling
mannor. My first instinct was that it was a injured dog, possibly hit by a car and dragging it's hind end. Even though it was still ~100 feet ahead
of me, it somewhat startled me and I stopped dead in my tracks. It was at this point it had stopped in the middle of the road and I got a real good
look at it. It was a baby. I remember thinking 'how the hell did this baby manage to crawl out of a house and in to the middle of the road?'. And I
started to quickly make my way towards it to get it off the street. Somewhat torn between comical and ergency, I remember almost laughing as I trotted
Once I got within 15 feet of it, I was hit with a brick wall of realization that what I was trotting towards, what I was looking at was not real.
Atleast that was my first impulse as I froze in my tracks. This 'baby' jolted his/it's head around and with sunkin black, lifeless eyes stared at
me with an evil grin. All I could do was absorbe and burn in to my mind what I was seeing. It was about the size of a 12 month old baby but
completely hairless. It was muscluar and had deformed legs that just dragged behind it. It was shiney as if coated with sweat or oil, and it was
demonic in presence. As it held it'self up with it's front arms, head cocked looking at me with a horrific grin, it quickly scurried away with it's
withered legs dragging/wagging behind.
It crossed the street and went through the side yard of the house in front of it and although I could not see anymore, I assume it went in to the
woods in the back yard. It took me a short time standing there motionless to regain my composure and I sprinted home almost in a state of shock.
However, this does not end there... Years later, I found out the woman who had lived there was a old woman and thought to have dimentia. She often
would call the cops accusing the neighbors of breaking in to her home and hiding in the attic. I often think that this demonic baby might have been
tourmenting her and living in her attic.
Anyway, it actually really feels good to get this out of my mind, and I am wondering if anyone has ever seen or heard of anything like this? I wish I
was an artist so I could draw the image I have in my head as my words simply will not do justice in describing just what this thing looked like.
Thanks for letting me share this expierence and all replies are welcome!
