According to God, where is my baby now?

I was pregnant but my water broke too early and I had to give birth to my baby who was too small to live. She had died a few hours before birth, so she couldn't be saved. I held her and said my goodbye's. My heart was inconsolable for three days and then I found some kind of salvation in the medication that my doctor prescribed for another few days, and then I started just taking time and seeing a counselor to heal. This all happenned 3 months ago. Part of my healing has involved getting closer to God and trying to feel His love for me. I'v been searching for this answer on my own, but can't find it in the Bible. I did a Bible study on Pregnancy loss and learned that my baby is with God, but then I hear other contradictory information, suggesting that no one can be with God if they were not baptized. My baby died before she was born. Is she okay now?

Oh honey, I feel for you! I can only imagine the pain of your loss. I don't know where your baby is according to God, but I can tell you my personal beliefs. I believe that we choose to incarnate as physical beings for certain reasons. Even if it's only for a short time. This precious child was brought to you because there was something you needed to learn. She came here and left when her reason for being was fulfilled. Maybe she came to teach you compassion for others who have lost children. Maybe she came to teach you how to cope with loss or to find your faith. Regardless, I believe that your child returned to the non-physical or spiritual dimension and will return once again in another time and place. She may even return to you in the form of another child. There's no way of knowing for sure. But I am sure that she was received in the spiritual world by loved ones who guided her, such as previously deceased relatives from both this life and previuos lives. I am sure that she is deeply loved and cared for and happy. Happy that she fulfilled a purpose in your life. God bless and best wishes!
