The new face of Gerber meets an unprecedented milestone. The company has picked 18 month old Lucas Warren of Dalton, Georgia, as this year's Gerber Baby. This decision makes Lucas the first child with Down Syndrome selected for the honor. "He never meets a stranger," says mom Cortney, who tells Today.com that she entered the contest without giving it too much thought. Gerber received around 140,000 submissions, to be this years Face of Gerber and according to company execs it was an easy decision, calling him a "perfect fit." Dad Jason says he hopes the this "will shed a little bit of light on the special needs community and help more individuals with special needs be accepted and not limited."
Kudos to Gerber for showing that every individual, regardless of how they look really can do anything.
