Friends you may have been following on Instagram the tragic story of the family that lost this bright beautiful boy last Friday. Although I do not know them personally my heart breaks for them. Tears fall for them. We as mothers – as humans – ache for one another and we long to lift one another’s burdens if only in some small way. I wasn’t sure what I could do but I knew I had to draw a picture of the sweetest little red head boy, Ryan. I’m now selling this print, with all proceeds going to Ryan’s parents for whatever they might need. This print is also for us to always remember his beautiful life here on earth. To know that his happy life goes on as he’s met with his loving Heavenly Father and with other loved ones and watches over his mommy and daddy. It’s also for us to remember to cherish the beautiful moments and the unbreakable connections we make with our little ones, with our family, friends and loved ones. To remember to feel joy, to cherish – to live and to love in the moment and always.
It is so apparent that Ryan’s mommy and daddy did just that.

Geo Fox Apparel is also offering this illustration as a Remember Ryan t-shirt so your littles ones can celebrate ryan’s life while benefitting the family at the same time. They are also offering their Sunshine and Daydreams shirt (one that Ryan owed and wore) as a donation for the family as well. What a lovely way to help show our love and support if in just one small way. Help us help this family in their desperate time of need.
Life is beautiful friends. God is good. Our connections with family and loved ones is perfectly eternal.
