This little boy was born on August 5, 1962, and died August 7, 1962. He was born to a mother who was a drug user and an alcoholic since before becoming pregnant. She continued to consume massive amounts of alcohol and drugs, so her baby died as a result of her actions. The father was not in the picture at all. Baby tells us she did not even know who the father was, because she was sleeping with men in exchange for drugs and alcohol.
His nurse took this photo for herself, as she had become quite fond of him while he was in her care, if only for 48 hours. She stayed beyond her shift to sit by him and talk to him, and to hold him when the doctors were examining him. She said she took this post-mortem. She had a strong feeling that the photo was touched in some way by his spirit, and she heard about us, so she contacted us. We confirmed that this baby boy's spirit is attached to the one and only photo ever taken of him, aside from closeups of bruises and other deformities that the doctors took of him. This is the only photo of his face.
He was never named. The mother gave birth to him and left the hospital against medical advice. She never returned even once to visit her child.
Baby Boy would like his keeper to name him, so we have only been calling him Baby Boy since his arrival. He needs a name!
A name is not all he needs though. He needs love, encouragement, and bonding. He speaks to us only telepathically. No one has heard his voice out in the air. This does not mean his means of communication will not change. He knows the English language well from traveling about the country where he was born (USA). We think possibly his vocal chords were damaged when he was born, but we haven't been able to confirm that with him or with the nurse who sold us his photo, as she has not replied to our emails since we took him in. She was crying when she left here, even though she cared for him so many decades ago. She said she's just not sure how to handle a spirited item so she wanted to make sure it got into the right hands.
Baby Boy said he has learned how to help people with addictions, depression, anxiety, and other mental and emotional disorders and diseases. He has made that his mission in all the years he's been floating about. He said he would have continued on that course but he became very lonely, and he now wants a person or a single family to love him. He will help his keeper and even their family, if the keeper asks, to control emotions of sadness, fear, or any feelings they do not wish to deal with now or in the future.
The photo is not framed. The dimensions are 5" x 3" with slightly pinked side edges and straight top and bottom edges, as shown.
For offerings, Baby Boy loves beets and radishes (of all things?), ice cream, milk, roses (fresh or dried), birthday cake with blue candles (very specific!), watching Sesame Street, Big Bird, Ernie and Bert, and especially Oscar. He likes watching birds fly and gazing at the stars at night. He also likes baby and toddler toys as well as Matchbox cars.
