I Have Six Children In Heaven: When Does Life Begin?

I have six children in heaven

Have you ever wondered what happens to a baby when they pass away in their mother’s womb or soon-there-after? I’ve had the privilege of meeting six children who passed away before birth.

Those who know me, know that I am a pretty private person—an extrovert but also a private one. The reason why I’m sharing this life experience openly about my six children is that I have come to acknowledge for some time now, that our testimonies aren’t meant just for us and also to understand the significance of human life. (please read until the end):

By 2007, I suffered my fifth miscarriage. Ed and I lost yet another child. It hadn’t really been a shocker to the doctors at this point.

The Dream

One night, in early Spring of that year, as I laid myself down to rest for the evening, without a thought in mind, I was given an unforgettable dream, to say the least:

I have Six Children In Heaven

The moment I closed my eyes, I was walking in Heaven! To the left of me was a beautiful gazebo, which looked as if it was made from the finest pearl. Around this gazebo were children—six, to be exact.

There were two girls and four boys. The five younger ones were playing with one another around the beautiful gazebo, the youngest being a baby. The eldest was sitting on some type of rock or stone listening to music. He was very handsome and had a slight resemblance to my Uncle Jeff, who passed away in 1996—tall and slender, with neat, curly, black hair.

People Aren't Colors

As I gradually drew closer to the children, somehow, I grabbed their attention and they all came flocking towards me…smothering me with hugs! Some around my legs, others around my waist because that seemed to be as high as they could reach, except for the eldest. I wondered who these children were.

“Mommy!”, they called out. “Mommy!”

These were my children! They were so beautiful, happy, and very well taken care of. My husband and I had six children in Heaven!

Ed always wanted a son, now he had four. The eldest we lost around 2003, the year we got married. What’s interesting, is that he’s the only one who I noticed would have been around the age he would be currently.

The Revelation

When I woke up the next morning, I was still in amazement and didn’t tell my husband until hours later. But I pondered within myself how I could possibly have six children in Heaven if I’d only had five miscarriages.

Well, about a week or two later, I miscarried for the sixth and last time (hence, confirms the baby at the gazebo)!

Soon after that, my husband and I were able to conceive again, and I gave birth to our second daughter, born healthy, happy, and beautiful. I guess that makes me a mother of EIGHT!

The Kicker

Here’s the “kicker”: Every last one of my children that I lost, were miscarried at TWO MONTHS OR LESS! Two months or less! That’s within the first trimester.

I know that so many people question whether human life begins at conception or birth, and I have found the answer to be at conception.

Our completed “earthly” family in 2008

I got to meet my very own children who I lost after they were only days to weeks conceived—and they knew who I was! I was ‘Mommy’! My children actually let me know that I was their mother!

You see, God assures us that He knew us before He formed us in our mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5), which means, that little life inside of that mother is a SOMEBODY, who was well crafted and has a purpose.

If you’ve had an abortion, God will forgive you if you ask Him for forgiveness—your child is waiting for you and knows you by name. You are STILL a mother, just next time choose a better alternative. If you’ve miscarried or lost a child at a young age, still, your child knows you by name and is waiting for you in Heaven. Life is the greatest gift.

  1. Both beautiful and powerful.
    I never wanted to have an abortion – I always wanted a big family. It’s taken a lot of work to heal from it. I wrote about what happened on the blog several years back. Thank you for sharing…

      1. This I believe. Several yrs ago – when I asked Yahuah for Peace about the domino of events – He allowed me to hear my little one’s voice. The Spiritual Realm (what I think of as 5d) is an amazing & beautiful place.

      2. This I believe. Several yrs ago – after the domino of events took place I asked Yahuah to help me find Peace. He did so by allowing me to hear the little one’s voice. The Spiritual Realm (or what I think of as 5d) is truly an amazing and beautiful place….

  2. Jennifer, my heart goes out to you for the pain of your losses (felt at the times they occurred). Your faith and acceptance of Father’s blessings through you is inspiring. I would like to refer you to two blogs that address the pains we feel in this life and the hope we have for Eternity. The first deals specifically with the theology about infant salvation.
    The second addresses what your blog brings up as an unstated question: if all babies go to Heaven, why should we oppose abortion and not just give the kids a fast ticket there?
    love and prayers,
    See you in Heaven, if not before! 😊

  3. Thank you for sharing. I’ve believed that my miscarried child would greet me. But even more importantly, you touched my husband’s heart because he had a girlfriend decades ago who had an abortion and it has haunted him. We look forward to seeing our additional two children (we have 7 on earth) in heaven some day!

    1. You’re welcome, Laura! I’m glad my testimony was able to bring comfort to your husband. Your family will meet that beautiful child one day. Btw, I love seeing big families. God bless you and your family.

  4. What a beautiful picture and testimony of God’s love for His children, thank you for sharing

  5. Beautiful! I’ve had a least one loss , but most likely two miscarriages (if my doctor was correct)
    , and the thought of meeting those babies is quite wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing your dream. A nice thing to wake up to it today as I get ready for a long day with my family. I hope you have a wonderful resurrection Sunday!

  6. Jennifer, I believe that life begins even before we know it for ourselves. That is what Jesus said – Before I formed u in the womb, I knew u! I hope and pray your story brings healing and comfort and peace to all who have lost their babies. God bless your blogging ministry.

  7. Thank you for sharing this testimony. I have two living children and have had two miscarriages and just lost twin girls at 22 weeks. My husband and I are in such pain and searching for peace and encouragement so that our family may walk through this with grace and hope. It’s encouraging to me that you continued to trust in Gods will and plan for your family.
