Baby With Down Syndrome Just Landed A Modeling Contract.

Everyone wants their child to excel in life and shine like the star that they are. But when you're born with Down Syndrome, the road to stardom can be rough. Just ask Asher Nash, an adorable 15-month old who wanted nothing more than to become part of an ad campaign, or rather his mom, Meagan Nash did. The little guy is a natural in front of the camera and loves to put on a show. Unfortunately, he was rejected. However, like any mom, Meagan wasn't willing to take no for an answer. So she fought hard and eventually managed to get her son to become the face of children's fashion.

As you can see, the 15-month old is very photogenic.

Just look at those adorable eyes and that smile. It's huge and can fill anyone's heart with joy.

His mother discovered, much to her disappointment, that it had everything to do with his disability. They claimed that Asher simply didn't meet the requirements of the children's brand.
