Growing Up in Heaven Quotes by James Van Praagh
Children in Heaven
Some people believe that only children born in the church get into heaven, not children born outside the church. They say this is because children born in the church are baptized and are introduced into the faith of the church by this baptism. They do not realize that no one gets either heaven or faith by baptism. Baptism serves only as a sign and reminder that we need to be reborn, and that people born in the church can be reborn because the Word is there, the Word that contains the divine truths that make regeneration possible. May it be known, therefore, that every child who dies, no matter where he or she was born, within the church or outside it, of devout or irreverent parents, is accepted by the Lord after death, brought up in heaven, taught according to the divine design and filled with affections for what is good and through them with direct knowledge of the truth; and then, being continually perfected in intelligence and wisdom, all such individuals are led into heaven and become angels.
Annette and I extend our deepest sympathies to all those who lost a child, family member, friend, or co-worker in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

Children of Heaven (7/11) Movie CLIP - Why Are You Late This Time? (1997) HD
The expectation of every mother and father who have had a still-born child, aborted child, or had a young baby die for any reason is that the baby will be in heaven. That is a great blessing for the aborted child. I read the above passage in your conclusion about babies going to heaven. This has brought me great comfort since I am a woman with children in heaven. Does one remain a mother to children in heaven? Are they being taken care of by the angels?
