A grieving mother who asks for a sign on his son’s grave was in tears after a robin landed on her shoe. She then captured and shared the moment on Facebook, which immediately went viral.
Due to a brain tumor, Marie Robinson from Waterlooville, Hampshire lost her son Jack three years ago. When the British mom visited Jack’s grave on the anniversary of his death, she asked in tears of the boy could give a sign of some sorts, and that’s when something incredible happened.
A beautiful small robin arrived and landed peacefully on Marie’s foot. Though it sounds weird, some believe that Robins are often associated with death and are seen by some as the symbol of the afterlife.
In January of 2014, the four-year-old Jack was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Four months later, the little boy passed away. His family, twin brother Liam and three older sisters are devastated by the loss.
Just before the 45-year-old mom visited Jack’s burial spot on the third anniversary of his death, she asked him for a sign.
When she arrived at the cemetery, she sat down on the grass only to notice a robin flying around and at one point it even sat on her hand.
The mother of 4 filmed the entire event and posted it on her Facebook page, where it has been massively shared. With a lot of emotion in her voice, Marie says: “You’re beautiful, you’re so sweet.”
“Can’t believe what’s just happened come to see my precious boy jack just sat down on the ground next to him and this happened,” she said in her Facebook post. “Yes, it brought me to tears. Taking it as a sign from Jack.”
“With that a little robin kept flying around me trying to land on me, eventually landing on my foot,” Maried told the Mirror. He didn’t seem scared at all.
“He went and sat on a nearby headstone so I got my phone out to film him being close to me and he flew over and landed on my hand,” she added. “He kept looking at me directly in my face and at one point he landed on my shoulder and nibbled me a couple of times.”
