SARALAND, Ala. (WKRG) — When 4-year-old Brantley Finch of Saraland goes for a walk this year, he’s the king of the road.

“It was a complete surprise to him, so it was great. He was very happy,” said Brantley’s mother, Kathleen Finch. Using cardboard, paint, foam posters, wood, fishing line, lights, Coke bottles and aluminum foil, his family built a scaled-down “big rig” made to look like his grandfather’s 18-wheeler.

“The trailer part is actually a fishing cart that we use for Brant when we go to the beach.”
Brant has cerebral palsy and epilepsy and making him a costume for Halloween is very special for his family. “For us, this is his ‘ball game’ and his little time to shine.”

“The suit is his shining moment, when many of us come together to see him and what we’re creating, and he’s the star of it all.”
