We live in a day and age where advertisements are finally starting to change and reflect society as a whole. People of all different races, backgrounds and orientations are being displayed proudly in companies’ marketing strategies – and it’s about time!
But when one loving mother presented the children’s clothing company, OshKosh B’Gosh, with her special needs baby, they turned her down heartlessly.
Representatives from OshKosh B’Gosh couldn’t look past the Down syndrome Meagan Nash’s 15-month-old son, Asher, has and said that “the company hadn’t requested a special needs baby.”
Meagan didn’t want the company to simply accept her son as a model because of his extra chromosome, but to see how skilled he is and how much he can bring to their company instead! So Meagan decided to bravely speak out about her encounter with OshKosh B’Gosh.
