Adorable Boy With Cerebral Palsy Dresses As Carl From Up For Halloween
Two-year-old Brantley Morse looked absolutely spot on in his little suit with bow tie and a bunch of balloons.
Brantley was born early at 24 weeks and weighed just one pound, 11 ounces. The tiny tot was born with cerebral palsy, stage 3 kidney disease, chronic lung disease and gastroparesis, but has been beating the odds ever since and is now looking forward to celebrating Halloween with his family.
Speaking to LADbible mum Brittany said: "The inspiration behind the costume all comes down to the message we're trying to spread. Although Brantley struggles with disabilities, he makes the best of every single day... including Halloween.
"We wanted to do something that would Brantley's medical equipment while spreading hope and positivity to anyone and everyone, especially those with special needs or disabilities.
"Nothing will ever stop us from representing inclusion and that just because you're a little different doesn't mean you can't participate."
Brittany put out a call for ideas on Facebook and when Carl Fredricksen was suggested she knew it was 'perfect'. So she set about pulling together the costume and, let's be honest, she smashed it, didn't she?
The cute snaps were shared on Facebook by Akron Children's Hospital in Ohio, where little Brantley was born, with the caption: "It is Brantley Morse's first time dressing up for Halloween, and he definitely got in the spirit! Brantley's mother Brittany wanted to incorporate his medical equipment in the costume to show the world that Brantley is making the absolute best out of his disabilities.
"The two-and-a-half-year-old got to test out his costume as Carl from the movie Up at a fall festival last weekend and is looking forward to celebrating Halloween this year."
The hospital also shared photos of Brantley from just hours after he was born and during physical therapy over the years.
The touching post has gone viral and has been flooded with well-wishes for little Brantley.
His super-proud mum Brittany took to social media to say: "Brantley is just over here making the absolute BEST out of having a disability and rocking his medical equipment with his awesome Halloween costume.
"You would never know this sweet boy has a list of chronic medical conditions, with that contagious smile that's always on his face! Hoping to spread some positivity to everyone, especially those struggling - if this little dude can smile, so can you!"
How cute is that? Here's hoping little Brantley and his family have a great Halloween.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help pay for Brantley's medical expenses.
