The four-year-old Riley Baxter at such a young age has been able to make a big name for himself. The young lad is also famous by the name of “Smiley Riley” and has won hearts of people all over the globe.
The Rochester, Kent-based kid was born with the Down Syndrome, but in no way, he ever has underestimated himself because of his condition.
The parents of Riley did have their doubts on how everything will work out for their child, but clearly, everything has started to pan out from such an early age for the talented Riley.
Stuart, 40 and Kristy, 42 had been living with under the fear that their son will always be judged on his disability and rather than his abilities.
The perception of Stuart and Kristy was broken when they joined a support group.
They were amazed to see how their son had started to make notable progress and the generous way by which the members of the group were treating him. The couple noticed that almost everybody adored their special son.
Riley was suggested that he should try modeling, and then parents decided to enroll him in a modeling agency, Zebedee Management.
The young toddler by now has signed many modeling contracts and is living up to the nickname he has been given.
When Stuart was informed about his kid’s diagnosis, he began to shed tears not because this would make his son treat differently but by the future of how people will treat him.
The Riley’s father who is also a sales manager said that he is glad that his perceptions didn’t pan out the way he had imagined them to be. Whenever Riley scores an achievement, a realization hits Stuart that says that his son has really worked hard to get where he is today.
The youngster was given the nickname “Smiley Riley” because of his ability to generate smiles on everybody’s faces.
Riley cannot communicate verbally up to its full potential but has a plethora of signs to express himself. In fact, he has so many signs of the Makaton sign language with him that he even teaches them to other kids.
The parents feel wonderful over the reality of their son being adored by his classmates. By all that Stuart has experienced in his son’s journey, he now says that if he could go back in time when the news of Riley’s diagnosis was given to him, he wouldn’t be upset at all.
