The “Ryan Gosling: Hey Girl” meme is alllll over the Interwebz these days, and frankly, we’re okay with that. From eye candy for pregnant women, to Ryan Gosling Loves Him Some Mom Bloggers, everyone’s got a use for Ryan Gosling.
Sunday Stillwell, the talented blogger behind Adventures in Extreme Parenthood, produced a series of images this week especially for moms of special needs kids, but we’re pretty sure they’ll, um, appeal to everyone.
Ms. Stillwell, who has two sons significantly affected by autism, is a fierce advocate for families with special needs. If her name sounds familiar to the “mainstream” community, it’s because she recently orchestrated the online petition asking the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to reconsider its decision not to allow a cognitively impaired New Jersey girl, Amelia Rivera, to receive a kidney transplant.
Although Ms. Stillwell had never met the Rivera family, she empathized with their plight, and was moved to action.
In these images, Ms. Stillwell brings her considerable sense of humor to the daily challenges of parenting special needs children. And for the record: using hotness to spread awareness of special needs = WINNING. Enjoy!
