A mum was stunned when she saw that her nonverbal son with Down Syndrome took an unexpected photo.
7-year-old Aasher Liles took a bunch of photos using his mother’s cell phone camera on a flight home to Houston, Texas. It turned out that he might have taken a snapshot of his guardian angel.
According to the boy’s mum, Kerri, she took the phone back later and scrolled through her camera roll. She was astonished by what she saw.
Kerri wrote on her Facebook page: “Yesterday we were flying back to Houston from Washington and my 7-year-old, who’s recently become obsessed with taking pictures with our cell phones, wanted to take some pictures out of the window after I had reached across him to take one myself.
“After he took a few dozen, I took the phone back and later went through the images to delete since my storage was getting low.
“As I was deleting, I came across this one close to the middle of all of his cloud and plane wing pics.”
In an interview, Kerri described how she had always known for a long time that Aasher had a sixth sense about others’needs. “Whether it be a hug or a smile. He just seems to gravitate to strangers in need,” she said.
“I do believe that he captured his angel out the window that day to bring him comfort in a rather bumpy takeoff.”
