What happened to my baby after he or she died? Will I ever see my baby again--and will I recognize him? What happens if I've had an abortion? Does God have a reason for letting my child die? How can I help a friend who's experiencing grief?
With compassionate answers for your troubling questions, God's Word shines with hope in the dark night of human pain. God showed His tenderness when David lost a child he had with Bathsheba. In his pain and grief, David spoke the word of revelation--the reassuring word of God's truth--saying, "I will go to [my child] but he will not return to me" (2 Samuel 12:19-23).
As Pastor Jack Hayford says, "This isn't myth, fable, legend or a selection of poetic thoughts for the sorrowful. This is truth to set us free. Here we are specifically freed to expect to meet children in heaven, to recognize them and to be with them."
Let Jack Hayford show you the freeing truth of the Word of God and its promise that one day, like David, you will hold your child in heaven.

Overally this is a helpful book to anyone that's a Christian and wants reassurance that they WILL hold their baby/ lost child again in heaven. I read it in one night and it did give me hope. There are very concrete examples cited in the Bible in black and white that prove babies have souls prior to birth. John the Baptist leaps in Elizabeth's womb when Mary visits while pregnant with Jesus. Some authors will takes versus out of context or stretch the truth a bit to make a point. I didn't feel like the auther was taking liberties or exagerating biblical truths in order to support his theory. Another reviewer prepared me for the only thing I don't like about this book... I don't think the author ever suffered a miscarriage or loss of a child. I say this because he cites missing a FLIGHT as an equitable metaphor for the LOSS of a CHILD. NOT exactly the way I felt when I was laying on an ultra sound table and learned that my baby did not have a heart beat. I've missed flights before...
When I lost my baby in the 1980's no one was talking about the grief of this kind of loss. People said the most uncaring insensitive things - I'd have another one, God needed another angel, and all sorts of ridiculous things. This book has sound theology, and explains what BIBLICAL teachings are about the soul of a baby. Further, it explores a concept many Christians seem to misunderstand - GRACE. In addition to miscarriages and still births, this book addresses abortion. Parents who have lost a baby to an abortion deal with the loss, and the guilt of their decision as well. This is a wonderful book about both the grief and the grace of God and His love for all of us. Most of all, it gives parents who have suffered the loss of a baby hope that they will, indeed, hold their child in heaven.
We recently lost our third child, Cailin, in placental abruption on my 36.5 weeks of pregnancy. My pregnancy was perfect. My husband and I were both very excited and my 2 older kids, 9 and 4 who were also excited increased our anticipation exponentially. I ate the right food, took vitamins, never miseed my checkups... My husband made tremendous preparations to the maximum level - had extra room constructed at home, had insulations installed to keep the summer heat off, went shopping as far as buying lanolin and 3 kinds of diapers. Then, on one early morning, I thought I was starting to feel labor pains. When we got to the hospital, it was too late. My baby lived for 22 hours and died. We were crushed. Being a follower of Christ, I cried to Him day in and day out asking Him desperate questions.
And, this book answered 50% of my questions. Like does she have a soul, where is my daughter now, will I see her again...and many more. While reading this book, I wanted to buy...
