Burying Abandoned Children: Group Needs Your Help

Burying Abandoned Children: Group Needs Your Help

The bodies of Fresno County's unwanted and abandoned babies will soon get a proper burial instead of staying stored at the morgue.

KMPH News first brought you the story Monday night about these little bodies, often dumped in the trash.

On Tuesday, Fresno County Supervisors voted to turn the bodies over to the Garden of Innocence.

Each child's remains will go in a small urn and be buried at Fresno's Mountain View Cemetery.

Now organizers just need blankets and poems to bury with each child.

They hope to have the burial ceremony in the next few months.

You can find more information on how to help by visiting the following website: www.gardenofinnocence.org.
