You know those moments in life when you hear of a life taken to soon, those moments effect you in major ways. They can break your heart; make you pray for complete strangers, feel helpless, want to love your kids even more, and hold them even closer than before.
That moment came for us when we heard of the sudden death of Ryan (you can read his full story here). After hearing about his families’ tragic loss we wanted to help. However how we would accomplish that was unclear. We do not know this family personally. We simply saw a small glimpse into Ryan’s life through his mother Jacqui’s beautiful photos on Instagram. Nevertheless we are moms, and these parents’ suffered a parents worst nightmare. We prayed for Ryan’s family, but we wanted to do more. We believe in the power of prayer, which is why we wrote this post to encourage you to pray for his family. Also to promote the many efforts that people are taking to raise money for this family.
Word’s can not express how tragic this loss is to Ryan’s family. All we can do as a community of parent’s is to help where we can.
