Red Balloons for Ryan
The Instagram community has lost one of it's most beautifully captured souls, Ryan Cruz Saldana, the 3 year old son of Jacqui, known as @babyboybakery. Certainly this was a tragic accident and I could never imagine the pain that sweet Jacqui is going through right now. I simply can't wrap my head around the fact that such great sorrow needs to be dealt with by anyone, let alone a mother losing a child. I first began to follow Jacqui because her life seemed very paralleled to mine. She is a mom who oozed with love for her husband and son. She took Ryan everywhere and they were always having fun. Those gorgeous red locks of his could stop you dead in your tracks and I know for certain that he will not be forgotten. The overwhelming outpour of support from the IG community alone shows just how strong we are together. Below I will share a link where you can donate to the family and a link where you can also purchase a shirt where all proceeds go to the family as well.
Although I do not know this family personally, the ability that we have to be so graciously let into other people lives through social media allows us to form a deep bond; especially because we all have something in common, motherhood.
God bless the family.
