Unfortunately the oetutuib becines viud wutg the death of the beneficiary and the children do net beneit from it/

There is only on limited circumstance and that is when the beneficiary dies after the immigrant visa is issued and the children are allowed then to follow the deceased beneficiary.

I wish I had better news for you but there is no way under the law for the children to benefit from the petition.
