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!!

October 15th is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness day.  To remember the babies that have been taken to Heaven too soon, you light a candle from 7pm-8pm in their honor.  Here are the beautiful pictures that I received remembering my baby boy.  I want to thank everyone for taking the time to light a candle for Adam.  Words cannot even express how much joy these pictures brought to me!  Thank you, everyone!

Steve and I did this one for our son.

These were the candles burning at my parent's house.
