What happens to toddlers in heaven?

Question from a reader:

Do toddlers remember how they died, do they wonder where mommy and daddy and the rest of their family is, are they looking for them, who takes care of them especially if they were just 2 1/2 and couldn’t talk yet?

Answer from Randy Alcorn:

Heaven isn’t a place of confusion, but clarity. We might remember bad things, but only with the right perspective that takes the dread and pain out of those things. They will surely remember parents, but will not be sorrowful, as heaven is a place of joy and delight. We don’t know if children remain same age in heaven, but even if they do there will be no lack of angels, people and God himself to watch after them. Plus, heaven is a place of complete safety, where there are no accidents and everyone can be trusted completely.
