When Lucy was little, my mother took her to a modeling agency that had an open call for toddlers. Lucy was rejected because she had Down syndrome. I’m no stage mom, but I was sad and angry (we all were) because she was turned away solely because of Down syndrome.
Fourteen years later? Lucas Warren, 1, is the Gerber Baby of the Year – and he’s the first baby with Down syndrome to hold the title, beating out more than 100,000 applicants. Way to go, Gerber and Lucas!
BTW, how could could they reject this FACE 14 years ago? (OK, I’m biased). #inclusionmatters
