These are a very young Matthew,Lissa,Kevin. Matthew being on the left.He was born in Vietnam and was adopted by me after I got out of the service.At the time the North Vietnamese were killing the darker children. I wanted to at least save one child,so I adopted him. He had bullet holes in both legs and perforated eardrums from gunfire.He stayed with us for a while and then became a danger to my kids.I couldn't let that happen,so I was forced to give him up to a very nice black family.A few years after,Matt died of complications.Rest in peace Matt you were loved by us and are now in a better place.

My Son Matthew Farro
