Horrible turn of events in the blogger world. Self-proclaimed mom blogger, 26-year-old Brianna Valenti, was arrested after a little girl she was caring for passed out. Brianna had called 911 to report that the toddler was experiencing trouble breathing, due to an allergic reaction. Investigations have revealed that the 2 year old might have been abused…
The two year old, identified as Raelynn Rose by her father, tragically died 2 weeks after being admitted. Brianna, who is the girlfriend of Raelynn’s father, initially reported the incident as an ‘allergic reaction’. However, subsequent findings prove otherwise.
“Capt. Greg Savage from the Erie County Sheriff’s Department told WIVBTV 4 News that Valenti advised 911 operators that “she had an unresponsive baby suffering from a possible allergic reaction,” Mom.me wrote. Other outlets also say that Brianna called the police to say that Rose had hit her head and passed out!
Yet, the new reports are saying that Rose suffered from abuse, which led to her passing out. According to medical reports, Brianna allegedly ‘shook the child almost to death’! Also, Rose’s father, added that Brianna was, as well, caring for her 5 year old daughter when it happened.
Mom blogger detained, as toddler left in her care dies
“Valenti was taken into custody a day after Raelynn was first admitted, charged with reckless assault of a child, assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the sheriff’s office”, Inside Edition reveals.
Moreover, the issue gets bigger with the mention of a pretty popular blog. Weird Wild Wicked is a blog for moms, where Brianna was listed as “head parenting blogger”. Previously, she had written about her happy life with both kids.
“It’s a blessing to wake up every day to little feet running down the hallway, yelling ‘good morning!’ Valenti said. “And even if the day does start as you waking up to her, messing with her little sister in her crib, patience is a virtue parents — life doesn’t get easier. We just get better at handling it.”
The blog has now been taken down, with only a personal statement by its anonymous owner
“I really do not know where to start with this. Right now I am in shock, I am horrified, I feel sick and this is incredibly difficult for me to write however it needs to be done. It has come to my attention that one of the people who briefly wrote on this page, Brianna Valenti, has or is being charged with murdering a beautiful and innocent child who should still be here with us today”, it begins.
“This is truly awful and it crushes me to know someone who appeared so loving and kind for so many years could have done this”
“I haven’t spoken to Brianna in a very long time, the last time we spoke was probably when I let her know I would no longer be doing the blog and I just really wish I would have maybe reached out and seen if she was doing okay. My heart is in pieces thinking of her own daughter, for Raelynn and her entire family, for everyone affected by this. I don’t know really how to deal with this, I don’t know what to say, I was thinking of deleting the blog but I am not sure how to do this on this website so I thought I at least would write something out for all those looking…”
