“My first thought,” Nash said, “was, ‘Well, did they say they did not want a baby with special needs?’”
Nash eventually started working with a campaign called Changing the Face of Beauty. And she also went on Facebook to lobby OshKosh to use her son in an ad.
A post highlighting Asher on the “Kids with Down Syndrome” Facebook page got more than 89,000 likes and 100,000 shares in less than two weeks, the AJC reported.
Her work paid off. Friday, an OshKosh B’Gosh representative sent an email saying, “We have extended an invitation to Asher to participate in an upcoming photo shoot and are excited to include him in our advertising,” Channel 2 reported.
