Wil Can Fly

Wil is a lovely 17 month old child with Down Syndrome and has brought lots of joy and happiness to his family since he came to this world.

Wil has always wanted to fly ever since he learned to roll on his stomach. When on his stomach he likes to throw his arms behind his back and wiggle his feet. His dad Alan and family have always joked that he will one day take off. So being a photographer Alan decided one day to make that a reality. He took Wil outside and did a composite photo of holding him up and then photoshopped himself out of the picture. Alan shared it on Instagram and told everyone that Wil finally started flying.

Now Alan is doing a Kickstarter fundraising campaign to help Down Syndrome community.
