Flying Child? You Have to See it to Believe it!

Ready to say “awww?” Art director Alan Lawrence found Instagram fame when he began posting photos of his son William “flying.” A little photoshopping afoot? For sure. But what a sweet and inspiring way to highlight how his son’s Down syndrome does not keep the toddler from enjoying an amazing life! Lawrence’s initial purpose was to inspire others to reach for the stars, no matter their limitations–just as his son does on a daily basis. As he told the Today Show, “the project is a way… to prove to the world that even kids with Down syndrome can live magical lives.”

See for yourself!
