Homeless Angel

Location: Bloomfield New Jersey USA

By: Angela Ohanian

I was 5 months pregnant in February of 1983 when we had a blizzard in New York and I was at work in the World Trade Center. I left work at 5:00 o'clock and when I went outside I could not see or walk because of the wind and snow. As I attempted to make my way across Church Street to my bus stop for the express bus to Staten Island, I was holding onto a lampost for dear life when all of a sudden what looked like a homeless man came up to me with the greenest clearest eyes I ever saw and said, "What are you doing out in this weather?" Obviously he could tell I was pregnant with my huge bulge under my coat. I had a hood on my coat and I could barely see but I looked at him and he said, "Come on, I'll help you get back inside." And so he helped me back inside the Concourse and we walked to where the subway entrance was so that I could take the train down to the ferry. He led me to where I could get the train and I looked up from my hood to thank him and - no one was there! There wasn't even a puddle of water where he should have been standing like there was under my boots. Gone! Poof! So I knew that had to be my angel protecting my son. There was no other explanation. I got on the train and the ferry and made it out to Staten Island and my husband met me at the railroad station. Further proof: all the buses got stuck going through the tunnel, and the stop I got off on the train was the last stop. Nothing was a coincidence. It was all in the angel's plan to get me and my unborn son home safely.
