Anonymous Devotee from Canada says: Sai Ram Hetal Ji, First of all, I thank you for such a wonderful blog, which helps all Sai devotees to strengthen their faith in Sai. I always read all the experiences and then think that yes, Saibaba is always there to help His devotees.
Now let me share the wonderful experience. I am basically from Mumbai, and was aware of Sai Baba, but not staunch devotee of Baba. I was regularly visiting Sai temple nearby my house in Mumbai, but never wished anything from Baba, as I knew He is omniscient and know everything about me. I got married and immediately after marriage, I and my husband had Darshan of Baba and seek His blessings. Though my husband did not believe in Baba, we went to Shirdi next day after marriage.
Here let me tell you one more thing. I got married to my brother-in-law, as my sister passed away suddenly and she left 2 sons behind. So to take care of two of my nephews, I got married to my brother-in-law. First 2 years I spent just to get attached with those 2 sons, one was 12 years and other one was 8 years old. So younger one was still missing his mom. In this situation, my husband was not into him, and we decided not to have more kids from me. That time I agreed, but we never know what Baba has decided for us in future. After 2 years of my marriage, i got pregnant, and it was tubal pregnancy. So I had to undergo surgery. That time we went to India, to attend one marriage. And there I came to know about my pregnancy and I had to stay back at India just for the emergency operation. My husband left me alone and came back to Canada with the kids. I was all alone during the time of surgery, and I was feeling so depressed as I lost my pregnancy. That time I used to go to BABA's temple and sob into tears, but I went back to Canada just for the kids, and again life became normal. Exactly after a year, I got pregnant again, and this time my husband had arguments with me saying he can't afford this child and I had to abort it. I was so helpless. He sent me to another city in CANADA to abort the child. The friend, whom I went, was having Saibaba's picture in her house. I don't know what happened to me and I gathered some courage and told my friend that I want this child, as one my tube had been removed there will be no chance in future for me to have normal pregnancy. There I came across your blog for the first time, and I started reading SAI SATCHARITRA. My friend gave me courage and I came back to my husband. But to my surprise, he was still the same and didn't want me or our child. He sent me back and I decided to leave him but give birth to this child. I went to that friend again, read SAI SATCHARITRA again and again. One night, I was just thinking about BABA and I felt as if BABA came near my bed and put his hand on my forehead. It was a dream or miracle I don't know, but I felt BABA blessed me. Thereafter, I had all checkups and doctor informed that my child may be small due to the stress I was going through. My amino test was done. All the time BABA was there with me in the form my friend's husband. He used to take me for all the appointments in special hospital, which was far from her house. I was chanting Baba's name all day long, specially the day when my amino test was there. I told my friend’s husband that I would like to visit Saibaba temple if there is one nearby. We were in downtown, and we found one on net. We went on the same address, but unfortunately there was nothing there, but a closed mosque. I was so dishearten that today I may not get Baba with me. But that day also, somehow my friend’s husband searched some phone numbers form the internet, which was mentioned under Baba's temple address. So he was trying, and as if Baba replied, there is no temple here in downtown. It was Sathya Sai Baba's temple, and that too was closed that time, that man replied on phone. We came home and I prayed Baba. After 2 days on amino test, I got a call from hospital that it was normal and I am having female child. Genetically she is fine. I burst into tears and prayed Baba, thanked Him. Till this time, I was at my friend's house. My friend’s husband called my husband and informed him that I m having female child and that is a high risk pregnancy. He replied that he is going to India to pick my in-laws, so he can't come to see me in that city. But if I want I can go back to home and see the doctor here. Once again, I came back to my husband. Both his sons were so happy that they are going to have their younger sister. Elder son told me, Mom you shouldn't leave this house. Dad married to you and this thing bound to happen. Why did you leave us? I was so happy to hear this that Baba really supported me through the kids. I never consider them my step sons and they also never called me aunty or masi, but Mom only. So after coming to husband's place, I got series of ailments during pregnancy, had to admit in high risk pregnancy ward, but it was good for me. I had got enough time to pray Baba. And it’s BABA'S blessing only that I got my daughter also normal today. She is 1 year old now. And no need to say that BABA is always with me and her, and she is more close to her Father. I really thank Baba to guide me, to inspire me, and to help me. Whenever I need Him, I pray to Him every day. I read Sai Satcharitra 2 chapters, and I get some peace. Om Sai Ram.
