It has been a very difficult decision if I should post any children on this blog.  I originally started with veterans.  I began working on this idea while serving in Iraq.  I was involved with sending the remains of loves ones home, but I was always left with an emptiness.  I just didn't want them to get lost in an empty cemetery and their sacrifices forever forgotten.  Focusing on the children and the short time they had spent here on earth was my motivation to post them, never to be forgotten.
