I dont know what heaven's like. I dont know what goes on before birth. I do know scripture says God knew me while I was in the womb, before birth.
Within a few weeks of Maddie being here she began laughing in her sleep. I was amazed. How could a 2/3 week old baby have the cognitive development to find humor in anything? They cant. There is no research that says the human brain is developed enough at birth to comprehend funny. And, the fact that she only did it in her sleep was another variable that helped me believe she was either remembering being with God or God was whispering to her while she slept.
I didnt really voice my thoughts to anyone, again, I dont know what happens before life, so I'm still just making assumptions here. I ran across a post on a friend's page and, again, began crying over its words. This is exactly how I picture what took place right before Maddie's birth. :)
A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?" God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you." The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy." God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy." Again the small child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?" God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak." "And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?" God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray." "Who will protect me?" God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life." "But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore." God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you." At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name." God said, You will simply call her, " Mom ."
