Kerri Lisles was taken by surprise when her nonverbal son with Down syndrome took a spectacular photo of what she believes is his guardian angel.
Kerri Liles is an Alvin mother to seven children, five from birth and two stepchildren. Her youngest is AAsher. AAsher is 7 years old and was born with Down syndrome. Aasher’s parents named this special boy with an extra "A" to reflect his extra chromosome that Kerri told Chron.com he was "blessed" with.
"His name reflects his AAwesomeness. You know when you get an "A" on a paper and how great that is, but when you get an "A+", that’s really, really good," Kerri told Chron.com. "That’s how we feel about AAsher and how we want others to view him and his diagnosis. (Houston Chronicle)

Kerri tells what happened during a recent return flight home with AAsher:
“So we’re taking off and there’s a lot of turbulence and he’s sitting next to me,” recalls Lisles. “Of course, when he sees the phone he wants it, he starts taking pictures, and I’m like, cool, cause that’s kind of distracting him from, you know, that part.”
AAsher took dozens of pictures during take-off. After the plane got past the bumps, Lisles got her phone back.
“So I’m going through and I’m holding my thumb on there and I’m like, ‘Check, check, check, check, check, delete. Check, check, check, delete. Check, chec — Whoa, what is that?’” says Lisles. “As soon as I got internet service I’m like, post that to my Facebook and I’m like, ‘Y’all look at this picture that AAsher took. What the heck is this?’” (click2houston)
“AAsher has always had some something. If it’s his guardian angel, if it’s someone watching him, I don’t know but it’s his something,” Lisles says. “I guess we’ll never really know what exactly it is, but I do know for a fact it was out the window of the airplane, he took it, it is an iPhone picture and it’s real.”
The Lisles family says it doesn’t matter what you believe the photo is, as long as you believe in AAsher. (click2houston)
