I have a dear friend who is also a baby loss mom. Her little boy, Brian Emerson, died in January of 2008 at 21 weeks gestation (I think). She doesn't talk about him often, but she and I are able to talk about him because we both understand. I understand that not everyone can be as open as I am. I've always been a fairly outspoken person.
Anyway, she's pregnant with a little boy again, and they're having a really hard time naming him. She asked for suggestions today on a facebook status, and another friend of hers whom I don't know suggested the name Brian.
It was a kick in the gut for me. I can only imagine how it would feel for her. I'd be really upset if I asked for names and someone suggested Cora.
I'm hoping her friend just doesn't know. But if she does and suggested it...that's just heartless.
