Proud dad Alan Lawrence has found an amazing way to show his youngest son Wil how incredible he is. Wil has Down syndrome, but he also has a pretty unique gift. Wil can fly! (Thanks to a little Photoshop magic from his dad.)
"These photos of Wil flying have taken on a special meaning for me as I think about the unique challenges Wil is going to face growing up. I hope to teach him that even with his disabilities he can do anything he puts his mind to.”
"He likes to throw his arms behind his back and wiggle his feet and my family and I have always joked that he will one day take off." So one day, Alan decided to make it happen, using his camera. He held Wil up in the air, took a bunch of shots, and then edited himself out.
