Will I see my daughter again after I die.....?

April 7, 2010 1:33pm CST
I am a firm believer that there is an after life, somewhere which follows death. I don't want to believe you pass away and then all there is, is total darkness. I recently lost my daughter, she was born at 25 weeks (15 weeks early) and she was doing so well until she got NEC and died 3 weeks later. I was and still am devastated and the only thing keeping me going is knowing that one day, when it is my time to go I will be reunited with her. Anyone else believe in the 'next life' or have a similar thing happen to them? It would be nice to hear other peoples comments.

I'm so sorry for your loss Leanna86, a parent losing their baby is the worse thing in the world to happen in my opinion. However I do believe in the after life and you will see her again. I believe that there is no way that this is all there is. Think of your daughter as an angel that God decided he didn't want to depart with. May prays keep you going and know that the angel that you now have in heaven waiting to see you again someday. God Bless you and your family.

I believe that you will most definatley see your daughter again. You will hold her in your arms and be able to shower her with all the love in your heart. And comforting song I have recently learned says it all..."If we never meet again this side of Heaven, As we struggle through this world and it's strife, There's another meeting place somewhere in Heaven, By rhe side of the river of life...Where the charming roses bloom forever, and where seperations come no more, If we never meet again this side of Heaven, I'll meet you on that beautiful shore" You will meet her again someday on that beautiful shore...be firm in this belief!

That is a lovely song, thank you for taking the time out to post it! And thank you, I hope that I will get that chance to meet her again, it was very short lived.

i really believe that there is afterlife where we will go that we may really have peace my opinion for your situation is that you will be reunited with her if you are going to heaven, but i am not saying you will go to hell. i conclude from your situation that God is testing you if you will continue to believe in Him or condemn Him for your own misery, and if you still believe in Him despite of your misery, He will gave your daughter back as a gift for your faith. this is purely my opinion

I don't care the "next life",and if it exists somewhere,it's less important for this life.So be good to youself at this life-the life of reality. I believe you will reunited with your daughter in the after life if it exists .

Hi Leanna, I am so so sorry for the loss of your daughter. You are going thru every parent's very worst nightmare. You have my deepest sympathy. I would like to believe that there is an afterlife. It is hard to imagine that all these strong emotions and our spirit just turn off once our body gives out. Years ago, I worked for a medium. I typed manuscripts of conversations he had with those that had passed on. He would tell you that there was definitely an afterlife. This man was not a nutcase. In fact he was quite well known and very respected. I don't have any proof but I choose to believe that we will be reunited with our loved ones when our time comes. {{{{HUGS}}}}

Unlike you OP, i am a firm believer that there is no afterlife. I enjoy living my life to the fullest that way i will have nothing to regret when it is my time to die. It is a comforting thought that you would get to be with your loved ones when you die, but thats all it is. Its a comfort. There is no proof. When science can prove god, and afterlife, and all that crap, then i will believe it. Until then, i am atheist.

Some of those that believe say that souls travel together in our journey, that being so maybe your daughters time in this life was only short but will be long in the next life. You are remaining here to grow and develope through the lessons in this life, do not spend it in sorrow, spend it as a the gift it is. Blessings

I'm sure you'll see her again. But right now you have to live your life cuz you only get to live once and i'm sure your daughter would've wanted you to live your life to the fullest so keep on believing while you're living. :) i also believe in the afterlife btw. :)
