Last night I was working on the 2017 Wil Can Fly calendar. I can't believe it's been a year now. We are planning on having the 2017 calendars available for pre-order very soon. With that pre-order launch we are going to announce where the proceeds from last year's calendars were donated. We have a big surprise planned for our @rubysrainbow recipient. So stay tuned! For all of you new followers who are wondering why Wil flies, head on over to the blog to learn more.

“El volar simboliza que somos libres, los grandes sueños, que podemos hacer cualquier cosa si nos lo proponemos. Cuando supe por primera vez que Will tenía el síndrome de Down fue difícil, pero hay un significado profundo en estas fotos, el comprender que Will es una bendición para nuestra familia”, dice Alan.
Happy Sunday! My family and I just got done watching the recent BBC interview I did about Wil Can Fly. So grateful to the BBC for reaching out to share our story. In this interview I said that “its not easy” raising Wil “but worth it”. Part of me wanted to change what I said about it not being easy. It's that part of me that wants to hide some of the common challenges that come with raising a child with special needs so that people will not be afraid to give them the chance they deserve. But in reality all of my kids have their own unique special needs and just like raising any kid it is not always easy – but it is so worth it and the everyday joy is indescribable. Wil is not a trial for our family, he is perfect in every way and I am so incredibly grateful for my family and would not change a thing about any of them. You can find a link to the interview in my profile.

This was the first Wil Can Fly photo that really made me pause and realize the deeper meaning to the series I had just started. I had taken a handful of photos of Wil flying before this one but after this photo the "Wil Can Fly" message revealed itself. It was something about Wil looking at himself in the mirror for the first time that made me pause, it was like he was recognizing himself and his differences for the first time but also understanding his potential. I know he probably wasn't thinking that but it's how it came across to me. I originally took this photo with the idea that Wil would be brushing his hair and laughing, but as we started shooting he noticed himself in the mirror and we knew we had something more beautiful than we had intended. Wil decided what the photo really needed to be about. That seems to be the case with most of the Wil Can Fly photos, we usually start with an idea and then through Wil's expressions the photo evolves.

We decided to put Wil in charge of washing Annie, it's a lot easier for him to escape when she starts shaking. #wilcanfly #downsyndromelove #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndromerocks #t21 #trisomy21 #upsyndrome #morealikethandifferent #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #mystory #babiesofinstagram #changingthefaceofbeauty #instababy #toddlersofinstagram #downrightperfect
