Target Gets It.

Just over a month ago, I wrote this post drawing attention to the UK's newest baby model Taya and said that the world needed more Down Syndrome. Thank you Target for stepping up to the plate!

Recently, Target put out a new advertisement featuring a little boy with Down Syndrome.
In response, Noah's Dad wrote a post commending Target for recognizing that people with Down Syndrome deserve to be treated just like everyone else. They recognize that children with disabilities wear clothes just like everyone else and they are beautiful just like everyone else. Well, needless to say the story has spread like wild fire and gone national making it to the headlines at ABC news. I am floored by the support and response and am deeply encouraged. Please, if you haven't already, check it out.
