Why a Name Gallery?

I have created this name gallery dedicated to photos, drawings, etc of Adam's name. I know this may seem silly to some who don't know what it is like to lose a child, but to a mother who deeply misses her son, seeing his name throughout the world brings a smile to my face.

If you have a living child, you will say their name countless times, see it on homework, sports/ dance programs, diplomas and are also able to take pictures of them throughout their life while they are growing up. All of this has been taken from me. This is my way to remember Adam and keep his memory alive. If you would like to add a photo to this name gallery, feel free to e-mail me at
April.Brightbill@yahoo.com. I really appreciate everything I receive!!

Another way to remember Adam

I am not very good with computers. I have really amazed myself that I was able to figure out how to start a blog, add pictures, music, and graphics. But I can't figure out how to add a link to make a new page dedicated to all of the photographs that I have been making and receiving for Adam's name. So...I just decided to start a new blog to post these pictures. Feel free to send me an email at April.Brightbill@yahoo.com of any pictures of Adam's name that you would like to add to his name gallery.

I know that this may seem silly to others who have not lost a child. If you have a living child, you will say your son or daughter's name many, many times throughout their life. But I have had this taken from me because many people don't want to metion Adam because it makes them feel awkward, they don't want to upset me, or others may just plain forget about him. Also, if you have a living child, you will be able to take pictures of them on your vacations. Adam will never go on a vacation with me. This is just another way of remembering my son.


  1. April, I love you and Adam and Steve and Allison! I thought of you all so many times while we were vacationing and I may just have a surprise or two for you (wink).

  2. Thank you, Stephanie. SO excited to see what the surprise could be!!
