When I had a miscarriage before my first son was born, I was told that she was "annihilated" and really didn't go anywhere. I can't accept that. I believe that life had begun and that her spirit lives in heaven and that I will see her again. What are your thoughts? Anyone have this experience?

Hi Anita, Almost 17 years ago I delivered my baby at 23 1/2 weeks. He was way to early and didn't make it. I believe with all my heart my son is in heaven! My belief is that he was to perfect for this world. I don't believe that anything is an accident or mistake. It is all part of God's plan. Your Baby is a real person that God created!! He is in heaven waiting to see his Mommy some day!! God Bless you!!!!

I have 2 sons biologically. I have an 8 year old and a 5 year old. I had my 8 year old at 19. I was young and did not stay with his father. He was my first child, and it was later contemplated during my 2nd pregnancy that I may have unknowingly miscarried before my 8 year old... as I'd skipped a couple months and had symptoms and then started bleeding again. How would I have known at that time?

Fast forward to about 6 months ago. I was sleeping in the living room... but not yet asleep. I'd been having a heck of a time falling asleep that night. It was after midnight, the tv and lights were off, but I just wasn't tired. I lay there, it was raining outside, and all of a sudden I saw a little boy... slightly taller than my 8 year old, slightly darker skin than him... but otherwise an exact replica of my oldest. The little boy walked across the living room.. he was wearing a yellow shirt. He paused by a chair that was directly across from me and looked at me and then took another step and vanished. I layed there frozen for a few minutes... though I'm not entirely sure on the time length. I remember the yellow shirt because when I was finally able to make myself move again... I went and checked on my sleeping kids and confirmed my suspicion... my 8 year old was wearing white to bed. I at the time didn't tell anyone about this experience because while I knew it was real... the next day it sounded insane in my own thoughts.

Other than for the first couple days after that, I haven't thought about it since. Until today. Last night I had a dream. That same little boy came up to me in my dream, stood in front of me and asked, "mom, what's my name?" I said, immediately and without hesitation, "Levi."(I'm not sure where that came from. I don't know anyone named Levi, have never contemplated that name for a child... nothing. However, it was a dream, and in my dream I knew his name.) Then the boy nodded, turned and walked away from me. As he was walking away I saw my older, deceased brother(definitely him.. though longer hair now and a mustache in the dream) come forward. "Levi" took my brother's hand and then they both turned and walked away from me.

I obviously can't prove anything to myself or anyone else on this... and I can't explain how I would know this or how I can say even that I know this as fact for myself...
but I know without knowing that this boy is my baby. A baby I didn't know I had. Why he would now show himself I can't really say for sure... after so many years. But I did recently miscarry... about 3 months ago. Perhaps it has to do with that. Anyhow, I believe that him not only showing himself 6 months ago... but showing himself to me in my dreams last night and with my brother... is maybe to let me know he's safe and okay. And maybe that means, one way or another... that the baby I miscarried a few months ago is safe and okay, as well. We may hurt and yearn for them, but I believe that they are happy and well taken care of in a place where they will never be hurt.

I think of Jeremiah 1:5a:

5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you,
before you were born I set you apart;

and Psalm 139:13-16:

13 For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
15 My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

I agree that life had already begun. Your baby is with Jesus. Only God know why things need to happen the way they do. All we can do is to trust that God's plan will always be better than our own even when things don't make sense to us. I am sorry for your loss and sorry that someone thought that the word annihilated was appropriate when speaking of the loss of a child.

I was pregnant with twins. A normal pregnancy AND an ectopic pregnancy. My son is now 19 years old and still mentions his brother from time to time. I believe he is in heaven. When Christopher was a toddler he used to say he was talking to his brother, and we had not told him about that yet. My Mom just died 2 weeks ago. I get comfort in knowing that she is loving on her grandbaby on those streets of gold.

I'm pretty certain that children go to Heaven, infants, toddlers, older kids. Those who meet death before birth are also included.

I dont believe its my place to say whether or not a person goes to heaven or not. But God is great and I know that he takes care of his children, have faith he is taking care of this little one. and dont listen to people like that, they are just being cruel

The children who die as infants go to heaven -FOR THE TIME BEING - but reunite with their parents in the 1,000-Millennium Reign of JESUS --and are still infants until that time, and the parents get a chance to pick up where they left off, raising the child -and sharing Christ.



What I'm trying to say is that mothers who kill their handicapped children in an attempt to "increase the odds" of their "eternal" salvation are sadly mistaken: You can NOT twist God's arm here -- he will give them the SAME chance to hear the gospel as all other -and NOT strip their free will, forcing them into heaven. LOL



Of course, there is not a guarantee that these children will accept Christ, but that is no different than for us -- some accept -- some reject -- But God will NOT "send them to hell" without first giving them a chance.



Don't tarry!, Even if for only a few more days, yet, you may download the KINDLE version of my book FREE until 12:00 midnight Tuesday 25 Sept 2012, Pacific Standard Time: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008J8R...

or at:

http://www.amazon.com/When-Babies-Die-Fu...



Some of the research underpinning the book is posted online for free:

http://GordonWatts.com/WhenBabiesDie.htm...



or: http://GordonWayneWatts.com/WhenBabiesDi...



or even: http://Gordon_Watts.Tripod.com/WhenBabie...



But the KINDLE version (also free) as well as both paperback versions are "current" and up to date -- I'd advise them.



Be blessed in Jesus.

I have had dreams/visions of what my daughter looked like an also of what my baby sister would have looked like. My mom an I had the same dream about my sister. She was in heaven an running in a field of flowers and was happy. So yes, I believe they do go to heaven

[deleted account]

There is a book, I think it's Heaven is For Real, where the boy recounts his experience in Heaven. When he tells his parents about it he says he saw his sister, which they had never told him about the girl... I think the mother had a miscarriage. So based on that, I definitely believe unborn babies go to Heaven.



Most believers also believe in an "age of innocence" where children are too young to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior, and it is generally accepted that if these children die they go to Heaven. I don't see why an unborn baby would be any different.



In April this year I had a miscarriage, and I am fully trusting God that my baby is with Him. My nephew died this summer too, he was 8 mos old, and I am fully confident he is Heaven too. In fact, perhaps the cousins are together waiting for the rest of us!

All infants that die go to Heaven, whether they were born or not. Miscarried or aborted children go to live with God in His Paradise. One day you will be reunited with your lost loved ones. That means you'll meet again, not just the BORN loved ones, but the UNBORN as well.



Every blessing and comfort to you in your loss - and every hope for that wonderful reunion in the future!

I am a beleiver in Jesus and Heaven and all that good stuff and I have also had a miscarriage. I miscaried early at like 8 or 9 weeks but it still hurt me because me and my boyfriend were homeless and living in a van, so i knew that i mustve had malnurishment. I know that your baby is in heaven regardless of how far along u were because a soul is not in physical form; when we die we are free from our physical body so why would it matter if your baby is born or not? And also, i beleive that the Lord was telling me it was just not time because things really started to fall apart during that short pregnancy. But i got pregnant again like 2 or 3 months later and im 30 weeks now & i beleive its time now. You will see your baby in heaven because like i said, a soul created by God is a soul, regardless of how big or how developed. God bless u :)

There's no question about it, of course they do. Jesus said he knows us before you were in the womb. I have a miscarried child there and 2 miscarried twin grandbabies. We dont always undrrstand God's plan but he never makes mistakes and loves all his little children. Some people will never understand unless they know the word of God. May God bless you and God bless those who don't know his word. Love to you

Thank you - all of you for your posts! I have 4 children but inbetween those sucessful pregnancyies I have had 6 miscarriages & am currently pregnant but my "numbers" aren't right & the doctor says I'll miscarry again. I'm so thankful for my children & am encouraged by all your comments. All things are in God's control & he never foresakes us (and that includes these precious babies that we haven't gotten to fully enjoy).

Hi ladies, I'm just wondering whether people believe a miscarriage - more particularly a "blighted ovum" where there is a pregnancy sac but no baby present - results in a baby/ soul in heaven?

Yes you will see your baby again and she is in Heaven. God is merciful, loving and your baby never knew world or sin, she takes you Baptism and is definitely in Heaven. I know my baby is in Heaven too.

God bless you

Yes, if there is a heaven that is where babies born too early go. And that is what a miscarriage is, a baby who is born far to early to survive.

Quite frankly, I like what Will Rogers said: "If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went." And if dogs go there (and they deserve to) then babies who never drew breath go there, too.

I know how you feel! A family member told me when I misscaried at 9 weeks, "Its wasnt even a baby anyways". I believe my baby and yours is in heaven and everyone elses on here is too! People say horrible things when you lose a baby that was unborn, but it if was a day or an hour old on earth they wouldnt ever think to say stuff like that. A loss of a child is a loss of a child, unborn or 40 years old.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven". Matthew 19:14. Yes I believe you little Angel is in Heaven with our Savior!! May God Bless you! P.S. I did have a misscarriage before my 1st son was born.

I have to believe that my children that I've lost are up in heaven, snuggling with God until I can be there with them. Our twin daughters Anastasia and Alexandra and our son Frank. They were pregnancies that were lost to us in our 2nd trimester with the twins and an ectopic pregnancy with our son. I've dreamed that they are waiting for me there. I can't imagine them any where else or God allowing them to be anywhere but by Him.

[deleted account]

yes my dears. ur miscarried babies are def in heaven! God needed them up there right away! my sister had a miscarriage at about 12 weeks, sadly.. but she had a ceremony for her and named her and all.. another angel looking down on us! have no doubts

I went through a miscarriage in September of 2009. Yes, I believe that all miscarried babies go to Heaven. I was 13 weeks pergnant when I miscarried. I had to then come home and explain to my 4 year old son and my 2 year old daughter that God needed our baby more than we did. That God needed another angel in Heaven. We have just now found a name for the little baby that is in Heaven, even though we do not know the gender of our baby we named the baby Skylar Noel.

Sorry for your loss :(
I believe that they go to heaven, cause babies are innocent and have not sinned, so an unborn/ new born baby is without sin, therefore they should go to heaven.... thats the most logical for me :)

[deleted account]

It doesn't surprise me that some one who is so absorbed in their beliefs can say such a rude and ill-hearted thing as that, truth is, of course all babies souls go to heaven. Baptized or not! Quite frankly, what is heaven except a fictional place that makes adults strive to be the best people they can be?!

Yes, I do believe that miscarried babies go to Heaven, and I am absolutely appalled that somebody actually told you she was annihilated and didn't go anywhere. Don't listen to negative people like that...Life begins at conception therefore that baby already had a soul and is happily in Heaven with the Lord and you will be seeing her again one day! God bless.

of course they go to heaven! Who on earth would say such a thing?!?! I myself have suffered a late miscarriage (14 wks 3 d). He is our ANGEL baby. I talk to him, pray for him, and believe with every inch of my being that I will finally meet my unborn baby boy in heaven when the time comes.

I've never heard of anyone saying that, children, especially ones who are never born, diffidently go back to heaven, if you think about it it's probably a better place to be anyways, with how the world is. My mom had a miscarriage a year after i was born and she said that i would always play with my little brother, and i even remembering things like holding his hand in church and stuff like that, so I do think they go back to heaven, where we all came from. I'm so sorry about your loss, but I hope that makes you feel a little better :)

[deleted account]

You are.  Because you cannot hold and see the child does not mean that it is not your child


Quoting Anita:

You know, when Mother's Day roles around, I sometimes think that I could have been a mother of four, and in a way, I was (or am).


 

[deleted account]

My sister has lost 2 babies at the very end of her first trimester.  She was never given a chance to hold them and see them.  The people that cared for her the first time was very cold about it.  I do not know how her second was because I was not there.  I hardly knew it existed before it was gone.  She now has 2 boys


Quoting Ashley:

i do believe they go to heaven. my sister lost her son at 17 weeks and she actually delivered him and held him and told him goodbye. he was a perfect baby boy just really tiny, he weighed 6.2 oz and was 8 and a half in long. but my whole family believes that he is in heaven. i say he's my son's guardian angel:)


 

[deleted account]

It says in the Bible that we have the right to follow him or reject him even in the womb. So, I do believe that the child does go somewhere. I do believe that place is heaven since they do not have all the worldly things influencing them

Your little is in Heaven! Having been through this myself I can relate and I know what you're feeling! People who aren't saved don't have that assurance of going to Heaven, so they don't understand our certain knowledge that we will one day see our babies again! God bless you and your family and keep on reaching out to other women who have suffered just as you have!

Anita, when I was in the process of baptizing my son, my husband and I had to take classes. The woman who taught the classes said that God would not condemn the babies who died before they were baptized. I believe that the same can be applied to your situation. I am unsure of your religous beliefs, but God decided that it was the right time for you to be pregnant but wanted his angel back. I believe that your daughter will be waiting for you in heaven and you will share a beautiful eternity with her when you see her. She is looking down on you and your family and blessing you along the way. God is inherently good, he would never damn an innocent, pure child. May God bless you and yours.

The Bible says Jesus knows when we are still in the womb. Until we are old enough to make a conscious choice of whether or not to accept Jesus as our Savior, we belong to Him. Therefore, I believe an innocent little baby goes to Heaven when he or she passes away. I'm so sorry for your loss and also for the insensitivity shown toward you.

Wow, the things that people say when you've lost a child. I've heard some surprising ones by that the baby was annihilated is one I've never heard before. I believe that life begins at conception and that the spirit lives in heaven after death. We've lost twin daughters that at 10 weeks had a heartbeat that we could see and movement of their arms and legs, plus we lost another baby due to an ectopic pregnancy. I have no doubt that they are together in heaven waiting for us to join them. I'm sure that your baby is up there as well, waiting for you to be with her again someday.

I believe that spirits are formed before bodies and they become one the moment of conception. Therefor life begins the moment of conception, God will not let any of His children simply disappear no matter how developed the body was. I have lost two babies one at 11 weeks pregnant and the other at 18 to me one was not more or less alive or real than the other. I know that I will see both of my babies in heaven one day. And I am thankful I have this knowledge, because I don't know how I could get past the pain of losing my little ones other wise.

I think that God has mercy on these tiny babies and that they go to heaven. I lost a baby very early in a pregnancy and I think I will see that child in heaven.
