Alan Lawrence told BuzzFeed News he began creating the pictures of his 18-month-old son, Wil, last year. Wil is the youngest of his six children, though the family is expecting a baby boy this September.

Lawrence said that he and his wife Nikki didn’t know their son had Down syndrome before he was born. While his wife handled the news “really, really well,” Lawrence said he struggled with it at first. “I was a little more selfish about it,” he said.

However, Lawrence said he quickly grew to understand what a blessing Wil was to his family. “Wil is going to be able to do anything he took his mind to,” he said.
