HOW AND WHEN DO WE GET OUR HUMAN SPIRIT?

We can how Adam got his 'Image of God' (human spirit) See 'THE BEGINNING OF MANKIND'. Now it just leaves the question of how do we get our Image of God into each one of our bodies?
Here are 4 verses which show that God gave every one of us our human spirit while we were in the womb, and one verse which shows that God "forms the human spirit within a person".
MORE OIN THE HUMAN SPIRIT
The 'human spirit' (also referred to as "spirit" in the verses below) has been recognized, realized, accepted, and understood throughout the Old and New Testaments. Here are a few verses:
NOTE: When the word "spirit" is lower case, it means the human spirit.
When the word Spirit is capitalized, it is referring to God's Holy Spirit,
which comes to those of us who believe and ask Jesus for it.
The Holy Spirit is in addition to the human spirit. We can each - potentially - have both.
Sometimes the translators have used the words 'human spirit, 'spirit' and 'soul' interchangeably, and that is why I refer to our 'spirit' as 'human spirit' and as a 'soul' when our human spirit is interacting with our bodies, as have many others.

Here Stephen is asking Jesus to "receive his spirit" (lower case = human spirit,). In other words, Stephen knows he has a human spirit which is separate from his dying body and that Jesus will receive it.
Note: It is evident that Stephen is expecting his spirit to be received right away,
not in the thousands of years which is believed by some (soul sleep).
James is letting us know that the body without "the spirit" (lower case = human spirit) would be effectively dead.
This verse is very specific and says “their own spirit (lower case) within them”. What else could this be, but the human spirit?
on these subjects.
