1-year-old William (Wil) Lawrence, the youngest in his family, was born a little bit different from the rest of his brothers and sisters, but that won’t hold him back. Wil has Down syndrome, but thanks to a bit of Photoshop magic from his photographer dad Alan, he also has a very special gift – Wil can fly!

Alan, who documents his life on thatdadblog.com and lives in Utah with his wife and 5 kids (with 1 more on the way), takes the pictures with the hope that they will inspire Wil; “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 takes them by holding up Wil and then editing himself out.
