We live in an age when advertising and ads are starting to change and reflect society as a whole.

We’ve seen some fashion labels feature elderly models and others bring an end to the practice of retouching photos of models.

But having said that, we still have a long way to go.

Because recently when a loving mother sent in pictures of her son to children’s clothing company Oshkosh B’Gosh, the management wasn’t at all interested in using him as a model.

The reason? The boy has Down syndrome. We live in an age when advertising and ads are starting to change and reflect society as a whole.

But having said that, we still have a long way to go.

Because recently when a loving mother sent in pictures of her son to children’s clothing company Oshkosh B’Gosh, the management wasn’t at all interested in using him as a model.

The reason? The boy has Down syndrome. When children’s clothing company Oshkosh B’Gosh recently announced that they were looking for models, Meagan got excited and sent in photos of her 15-month-old son, Asher.

The toddler perfectly fit the company’s requirements. He was the right height, he had the right hair color, and his eyes were the right color, too.

But after Meagan sent in photos of her son, she didn’t hear a word. Meagan contacted representatives from the company, who told her that they weren’t interested in using Asher in their upcoming campaign, because they didn’t want “a baby with special needs.”

“Did they say they were not casting a baby with special needs?” the mother hit back, according to The Independent.
