Letting our angel go vs. Pick a name for our little son vs. Help?

Hello. My name is Jack and my wife is Evelyn. We were pregnant with a little boy. Some routine test revealed that our son had an extreme abnormality, that would cause his quality of life to be extremely poor. He wouldn’t be able to walk, talk, or care for himself in any way. He would also be in pain. Though this decision was the hardest we will ever make, we deicded to go ahead and not continue the pregnancy. Te doctor recommended that we go ahead and pick a name, as it would provide some closure. However, we are reply struggling to pick a name. The appointment is Wednesday, and we still can’t decide. Our list is in the comments. God bless -Jack and Evelyn

I say Michael (or Gabriel) after the angels. I’m sorry that you had to make this choice.

how could you let the doctors convince you to end the pregnancy and let go of your son? You do know that doctors can sometimes be wrong don’t you? He could’ve been born completely normal and they could’ve been wrong and 2. there are tons of handicapped kids in this world that still live and enjoy life! you ought to be ashamed of yourself not all kids are the perfect American baby with blue eyes and blonde hair and no health problems there are tons of different kids and all deserve the same chance

Cian Michael? It is an Irish name, but I thought I would put it out there. It is pronounced Keean

This is a very hard decision any parent has to make. Although I do see the point here, it is not Mercedes child. And , if the situation was severe enough for this route to be recommended, they should continue. It is only right. It was medical advice they were given, and they took it. Whether you would make the same choice or not is up to you. So I say we help them pick a name, and get on with our day. It is not our place to tell them what it right or wrong. Especially when they are already so vulnerable. I, having lost a child myself, know that that is what I would want.


I like Emerson John.

You as a man are now officially worthless and don’t even deserve any kids in the future to call you their dad. I am handicapped and am wheelchair bound for the rest of my life from the day I was born I would never walk so what are you saying I should’ve been aborted too?

I had a miscarriage then when I got pregnant with my daughter Adrienne I had high blood pressure and was forced to deliver her at a little over 25 weeks and I still would have never aborted the pregnancy or anything even if her premature birth meant she would be a vegetable and couldn’t do anything for herself that is still my baby and she deserves to live her life

Wow. Never before have I been in such a place filled with such hate. I love my son. Even when I have never met him. He won’t ever talk. He will have limited if any motor skills. He can’t use the toilet on his own. He will be in pain, but won’t ever be able to show it. The doctors even told us that there is a possibility that he won’t survive his first few days. You do not know what we have gone through. We have been praying, crying, and asking with all of our might about what the right choice is. After lots of sleepless nights, 3 doctor visits, and talking to every family member we could, this is what we decided to do. My wife is an emotional wreck. She will be for awhile. She spent all last night trying to pick names she liked, but it was just too difficult. I told her that I found what looked like a site that would be able to help us. I now think this isn’t the case. I have tears in my eyes as I type this, as now, I am being told I am worthless, after I already have to let my only child go. He will always be loved. But, we feel that after everything he will go through, he is better off in the hands of God. And if at the end of my life, I have to face Him for what we are doing this week, I know that I have saved my son from a life of pain and suffering. And isn’t that what every parent is set out to do? So, I am sorry to have brought so much controversy, and I will take my names elsewhere. God bless the ones who helped us. Good luck with your babies

Wow. All of you who shared your worthless, negative opinions are horrible people. The poster DID NOT ask you to share your thoughts on whether they made the right choice. IT IS THEIR CHOICE TO MAKE!! Have an ounce of compassion for a couple who are going through what is undoubtedly one of the most difficult decisions of their lives. If you can’t say something nice, DONT SAY ANYTHING.

Jack & Evelyn - I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you find peace in this situation. I think any of those names would be beautiful - my suggestion would be to go with the one that has the most meaning to you personally.

you won’t be facing your son at the end of your life because your son is with God but you will be in a place elsewhere...very deserving place of elsewhere

You people are discusting with your negative comments! You have absolutely no idea what that family is going through! Would you rather the child be born an suffer through what few day he would have alive?? An that last post about his son facing God and him not because he’s going elsewhere. I have news for you God doesn’t look to kindly on those who judge others! YOU HYPOCRITE!!
