Photo of “Newborn” 13-Year-Old Boy Goes Viral

The photo was taken by the kid's adoptive mother at his request

Two years ago, Kelli Higgins, a children photographer from Florida, decided to adopt Latrell and his sister. Since the two were quite grown up when they got their new family, neither of them had any pictures of themselves as newborns.

While talking about this one evening over dinner, one of Kelli Higgins' other kids argued that it might not be such a bad idea to piece together a photo session with Latrell, and make him act like a newborn.

Kelli agreed, and soon enough Facebook witnessed the posting of a birth announcement accompanied by a picture of Latrell all dressed up and cuddling like a baby, sources say.

“Here's my sweet not so little Newborn! His name is Latrell and weighs 112lbs,” the birth announcement read.

“ Love this! What a great idea!” reads one of the most recent comments to this picture. “Amazing and touching gesture from mother to child, love it!” another one says.
