Do the Souls of Babies and Young Children Go to Heaven When They Die Too Early?

Incidents in recent news of a child being dragged into the lagoon at Disney World have sparked a great question from my daughter, which I am sure some may have asked or have yet to ask.  As we have seen in the media, the two year old child wanders away from their parents into an area of a lagoon that contained an alligator. As we read or heard on the news, the events of this situation were tragic in our hearing the the child lost their life. 

When my daughter and I were discussing this news piece this evening, it sparked in her mind a question, "did the child go to Heaven?" Whenever tragedy strikes, we often wonder where God is in the situation, and what about the victims?
