My husband and I slept with my infant son in a double bed. I knew that sudden infant death sendrome was more prevalent for children that didn't sleep in a crib, but it was easier to feed him in the nights when he woke up. In order to make the bed bigger, I would place pillows against the wall in the crack between the bed and the wall. The pillows were puffy and had large cracks in them. My husband and I fell in a deep sleep as well as my son. Then suddenly a glowing light illuminated the room, right at the foot of the bed and overhead. It glowed so brightly that only a face could be made out in the center of the light. It was neither man nor womens but perfectly formed. I was not scared but didn't question what I saw either. It asked me, "Do you love him?" I was confused. Everything must have seemed like I was dreaming but didn't answer the angel. The angel then nodded towards my son and asked again, "Do you love him?" As he/she nodded at him, I turned and looked. His head had fallen down in one of the cracks on the side of the bed and his nose was burried in such a way that he would not have been able to pull himself out of the hole covering his mouth. I grabbed him quickly and pulled him away from the pillows and the cracks of the bed and checked to make sure he was alright. I looked around the room and there was nothing there. I quickly fell back to sleep, a little scared and embarrassed that I hadn't take better care of my infant son. I didn't wake my husband and must have thought it all a weird dream, but it wasn't. An angel came and woke me up and saved my childs life. I know that God can work in many wonderous ways, and he didn't need to wake me by the angel. I feel lucky to have witnessed God's wonderful mercy and my family is so very blessed to this day. Peace be with you. God has a wonderful mission for everyone. Every life has purpose in God's plan.
