Do Children Always See Angels?

Most adults struggle to have angel experiences. Are children more open to them because of youth and innocence?

Many Beliefnet members have sent questions about children and angels. I have compiled the ones I am commonly asked and I have outlined them here with my answers.

1. Can children really see angels?

Yes, the evidence is overwhelming. Here is an account from a person I know. (The names have been changed as requested.) The only explanation for this amazing, true story is that an angel did give a message to a child.

My friend June was broken-hearted. She had done her best to raise her daughter Ericka, but in her teen age years Ericka became addicted on drugs and left home. While on drugs, Ericka became pregnant and had a baby boy. Ericka realized that she could not care for her baby and she asked her mother to take care of the baby boy until she became clean. Instead of kicking the habit, Ericka became more addicted and gave birth to a second baby, a girl. Once again, she implored her mother to care for her second child, with promises that this time she would become drug free and become a good mother. Despite her promises, Ericka disappeared and June lost all contact with Ericka. Taking care of two grandchildren was not the way June had planned to spend her midlife years, but she loved them dearly and never complained.


One morning four-year old David said, “Grandma, we have to find my baby brother.”

June replied, “David, you don’t have a brother.”

“Yes, I do,” the child insisted. “An angel came and told me we have to find my baby brother.”

June thought David would soon forget his imaginary brother, but throughout the day David persisted. "It’s not my imagination,” he insisted. “The angel told me. We have to go find my brother.”
