A teen mom has created a costume for her son, who has been diagnosed with Down syndrome, to help her cope with the loss of her husband.
“He’s so beautiful, he has such a gentle spirit,” mom Ashley Sotomayor told the station.
“We’re both so excited for him.
We just want to show him how much we love him and that we’ll always have him in our hearts.”
Sotomayer, 27, has been raising her son Dylan for more than two years now.
Her son was born with Down Syndrome and her husband, a Navy veteran, was forced to live in a nursing home for two years because of his condition.
Dylan, now eight, has an MRI and CT scan this week that shows that he has Down Syndrome, but Sotomy’s son was never diagnosed until the MRI showed he had Down Syndrome.
“I just love Dylan, I think he’s the most beautiful child in the world, but it’s hard,” she told the outlet.
“You’re trying to help him and he doesn’t want to hear it.
I can’t tell you how much it means to me.”
Dylan’s mom says she’s happy that the costume will help her son cope.
“It was very hard for me to get through that,” Sotomarosaid.
“I thought it would help my son, but now I’m really glad that I can help him.”
