'Wil Can Fly' photo series celebrates boy with Down Syndrome

Alan Lawrence is a photographer, blogger and proud dad of six kids. And one of those kids can fly.

Lawrence started blogging shortly after he and his wife learned their fifth child, Wil had Down Syndrome. In Lawrence’s ongoing photo project, Wil Can Fly, the 2-year-old is able to take flight all around the world — with a little Photoshop magic.

And Lawrence is using his photos to lend a hand to Down Syndrome research. In honor of Down Syndrome Awareness month this October, he and his family have created a 2016 Wil Can Fly calendar available for purchase, with proceeds going to the Ruby’s Rainbow and Reece’s Rainbow foundations.

“Wil has brought a new dimension to our family and has helped us look past the world’s preconceived definitions of normal,” Lawrence told Mashable. “We look forward to witnessing more of his unconditional love as he grows and helps us discover how to truly live life.”

“Even though Wil has Down Syndrome, my family and I know he is going to do anything he puts his mind to. Wil can fly.”
