Target Features A Child with Down Syndrome!

As many people have probably already seen, thanks to, Target has included a little boy, Ryan, with Down syndrome in one of their ordinary ads.

That is what is making the Down Syndrome community buzz. They didn't put him in a 'special ad for special people'. They didn't put any words to point him out on the page as anybody different. They just included him as one of the other cute little kids in the ad. That is pretty cool.

Ryan is one cute little boy! Nordstrom also featured him in one of their ordinary ads. Here's a picture of both of those ads:

The original post which started all the Buzz can be seen over at Noah's Dad's blog here. The Today Show also ran a story about and what Target and Nordstrom did, which you can view here.
