Limbo is believed to be a place where souls go that are not completely forgiven for their sins, but who aren't sent to Hell. It is believed it may be for people with venial sins that have not been forgiven. Limbo or purgatory is based on several scriptural passages, one being Matt 12:32. Christ refers to the sinner who "will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come" (Matt. 12:32)
My experience has been that more non catholics then catholics spend time worry about what purgatory is or isn't. Limbo isn't something most Catholics ( from my experience) worry about, because it's out of our hands. Our goal is to be forgiven for our sins so we can go to Heaven.

Recently the Vatican's International Theological Commission traced the history of the various opinions about the eternal fate of unbaptized infants, including that the Limbo of Infants, and after examining the theological arguments, they released a document in 2007. Basically it said that it's reasonable for us to hope that through means unknown to us that God would bring the souls of unbaptized infants to heaven with Him and that this idea does not mean that baptism is not necessary (because it is) nor should it be used as an excuse to delay baptism.
