Picture Perfect: Mom Fights to Model Son With Down Syndrome

"I look at him, and nothing's wrong with him"

One proud Georgia mom sent head shots of her son, little Asher Nash, to a modeling agency, but she got a response she never expected, NBC News reported.

Asher "really likes the camera" and loves the attention of a photo shoot, according to Meagan Nash, but the agency behind a casting call for Carter's clothing for children said that they weren't looking for children with special needs. Asher, who is 16 months old, has Down syndrome.

"I was hurt, because here is my little boy — I look at him, and nothing's wrong with him," she said.

Nash wrote a Facebook post about the experience. It went viral, and it wasn't long before modeling executives came calling.
