I was so pleased to open up my Facebook messenger and see that Adam's friend had a baby. His friend shared a picture of his new bundle and also his name. It took me a moment to realize that his middle name is Adam. He had given his son Adam's name.
I was so touched and so proud. One of the recurring themes I hear from parents who have lost a child is the desire to not have their child forgotten. To have Adam honoured in such a way and to have his name continue through his friend's son meant the world to me.
So of course, I had to cry. But it was a nice cry.
