A 13-year-old boy who was adopted and wanted photos of himself as a child had his wish come true — and a photo of him posing as a “newborn” has gone viral.

His adopted family created “new” newborn photos of Latrell Higgins, who was adopted, along with his sister, at 10 years old.

And while the photos might look a little cliche, that’s exactly what the family was going for, they told the Daily Mail. The goal was to have a little fun and mock the typical “newborn poses.”

In all seriousness, the Higgins family said on Facebook they hope the photo will help raise awareness for adoption of older children.
