Here’s your feel-good story of the day.
Photographer Carrie Lewis wanted to snap special needs children living out their dreams – so she reached out to her local community.
Carrie told Love What Matters: “My youngest son has special needs so it’s a cause that is dear to my heart.
“I had over 100 families reach out to me and I was shocked at how many parents told me that photographers often don’t shoot special needs children.”
Unable to photograph all the children, Carrie concentrated on three boys that wanted to be cops.
Zane, 13, is a nonverbal boy with Down syndrome, Elliott, 7, has bilateral club foot, a coloboma in the left eye and four dead spots in his brain, and Owen, 11, has Angelman syndrome.
And to add to the excitement, Carrie reached out to the local police department to see if they would join in the fun.
She told Love What Matters: “They went beyond what I hoped for…They blocked off an entire road, brought four squad cars and let these kids live their dreams!
