Excited by the good news, Brantley waited eagerly in his mom's car early Tuesday morning after they pulled up to school. Sure enough just a few minutes later, Fox arrived, and Brantley broke in to a big smile.
They walked in to school hand-in-hand, and Brantley had his first good morning in a very long time. Surely, his good mood made for great school pictures.
His mom posted an update to her Facebook page Tuesday evening, reflecting on the happy day.
“Last night I was worried that Brantley wouldn’t do too good for pictures and that I wouldn’t be there to try and make his smile for something he will look at in years to come,” she wrote. “Maybe today wasn’t about making him or even me smile in years to come, maybe today was meant to make multiple people smile today and in years to come.”
