Sometimes supporting someone in your life creates a ripples effect. Gary and Shayna Gutierrez are parents to 3-year-old Camila and 4-month-old Jonas. BuzzFeed reports that Jonas was recently fitted with a head shaping helmet after doctors decided his head had become too flat from sleeping on his back.
A few days later, Camila put on her bicycle helmet to show support to her little brother, who may or may not be feeling self-conscious about his new look. Gary decided to put one on as well.
A relative tweeted a photo of the helmeted family hanging out in the kitchen, to the delight of the Internet:
The tweet went viral, and the replies filled with photos of absolutely adorable kids wearing their head-shaping helmets:
Gary told BuzzFeed that Jonas will have to wear his helmet for three to six months. If he retains any memory of the experience, they'll at least be positive. And for the rest of us, a show of love like this can still mean a whole lot:
Ok, as someone who grew up having multiple reconstructive surgeries and head shaping, this pic right here? Makes me so damn happy.— Bill (@semanticpoetry) July 30, 2017
