"Before I was born, was I nowhere?"
"What do you mean, Buddy?"
"Before a baby is born, where do they live? Are they nowhere?"
"Hmm...well, I guess I would say that before you were born, God already knew you and He put you in Mommy and Daddy's hearts as little bits of love."

"Well, you didn't have a body yet, just a soul and before that soul was ready to be born, God let you live inside our hearts. Even before we knew who you were we loved you so very much. Where do you think Baby Jack was before he was in my belly?"
"Hmm...yeah...I think you're right. He was in our hearts."
