Baby Pictures Go Viral

Asher Nash was born to be in front of the camera. He also happens to have been born with Down Syndrome. His animated expressions and big smile simply radiate in pictures. To look at his grinning face is to be happy. And so his mom, Meagan Nash submitted his photos to a modeling agency with the hopes of landing a deal with OshKosh. But what happened next shocked Meagan who decided to do something about it. Read on and see what made Asher’s baby pictures go viral.

Meagan sent her adorable toddler’s pictures to a modeling agency over the summer.

When she didn’t hear anything back, she contacted them to ask about it. The agency’s response left her stunned–not because Asher didn’t get hired, but because the client was never allowed to see her photos!

The modelling agency replied that they never submitted Asher’s photos to OshKosh because the client hadn’t specified that they were looking for a baby with special needs.

Meagan was shocked.

“That puzzled me, and so I asked if they had said they did not want a baby with special needs.” said Meagan.

When the person at the agency replied that they hadn’t specified either way I asked why they wouldn’t have submitted them then.

That’s when the frustrated mom posted what happened on Facebook. And her message quickly began spreading online with people supporting Asher.

“I would love for OshKosh to meet my son and see what we see in him.  I don’t want them to use him because of this fuss we are making on the Internet. I want them to use him because they value him and see how much he could contribute to their advertisement.” Meagan said.

OshKosh did find out what happened, and they plan to meet with Asher in the near future. Meagan hopes this is only the beginning!

“Using people with special needs shows the world that these people have value and worth just like any typical person does,” she said.
