I am curious about something that's been explained to me a couple of different ways and I wanted to get some other opinions. So my question is, what happens to the spirits of unborn children who do not make it through pregnancy (ie: miscarriage, stillborn, death of mother etc.)?
I've heard it explained that they return to the spirit world to get ready to be re-assigned to a new body, but I've also had it explained that they embark on the same journey as a spirit that had "lived".
As I said, this was explained to me, they aren't my own views but I guess they meant that whatever happens to our spirit when we die (having lived) also happens to the spirit that doesn't get the chance to be born. As oppose to being "sent back" to await another body.
Is it at which point it occupies the body, or the point at which it is "allocated" to the body? It is believed that the body a spirit/soul is assigned is pre-determined before birth.
Some things we're just not meant to know while we're here my best guess would be that a spirit would simply be assigned to another life (if a soul even occupied the fetus in the first place) but that's because I believe in reincarnation.

You can go the distance, you can run the mile and you can walk straight through HELL with a smile.
I am hoping they are in the spirit realm still attached to us in some way shape or form.... as in a big part of our soul family and that we will be able to meet one day.. I truly hope for this. I have three...
Lol I also wonder if this connects us in the spirit to thier fathers... interesting thought
I think about this subject often..

the sperm and egg are the genetic blueprints that form the body. As in a house you follow the blueprints. In a child there is no soul until the body is complete and the house is not a home until people move into it. Both are empty shells. What exactly IS the soul? All I know is that when a person dies something is no longer there. They do not look like they were before death nor do they look as if they are simply sleeping. If the soul is in the sperm and also in the egg would that make the person have 2 souls? Makes no sense as both are just the blueprint and building blocks of the future infant, any more than a two by four would be considered a house.
Sperm or egg or whatever it's just a shell. For me conscious mind is the soul. When the shell die, the consciousness is transferred to a parallel universe in a transparent way that the shell doesn't even notice it.
