The family created mock duck hunting boat for Brantley Finch of Saraland. Brantley has cerebral palsy and is two years old. The boat was made by putting a car seat into a toy wagon. The family then decorated the cart with all the gear needed for duck hunting. The cart is festooned with camouflage, a toy gun and ammo, wading boots, and even a bird dog.
The mother was told that her child wasn’t expected to survive birth. Yet thanks to their determination, Brantley is doing well. She says that being outside helps Brantley with his seizures, and his father says that he hopes to take Brantley on a real duck hunt when he gets older.
We hope that the family gets their wishes and that Brantley enjoys his costume!
This isn’t the only story we’ve talked about involving a Halloween costume. Another child with CP was dressed up in his walker like one of the characters from the movie “Up”. That photo went viral. Check back in our archives to find that story.
