A Texas mother was left stunned after her non-verbal son who suffers with Down syndrome took a photo which she believes captured his guardian angel.
Seven-year-old AAsher – whose name is spelt with an added A to reflect the extra gene he was "blessed" with – was on a flight with his photographer mum over the weekend when he asked if he could use her phone to take photos of the sky.
But it wasn’t until Kerri Frey Liles looked back through her camera roll that she noticed something peculiar within the collection of snaps.
One of the photos appeared to show an odd cloud formation in the shape of a person with their arms open and extended out.
Kerri was quick to share her finding with friends, posting the extraordinary pic to her personal 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,” she penned.
“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.”
While Kerri admits she doesn’t know exactly what is that AAsher snapped, she describes the picture as “pretty incredible.”
“We've known for a long time that AAsher has a sixth sense about others' needs,” she explained to Chron.
“Whether it be a hug or a smile. He just seems to gravitate to strangers in need.”
“He will let us know when he sees something by pointing and flapping his arms like wings. So, we've known he can see angels that surround him.”
“I do believe that he captured his angel out the window that day to bring him comfort in a rather bumpy takeoff.”
