Today’s R2S: First Gerber Baby With Down Syndrome!
This is Lucas Warren from Dalton Georgia, he is the newest Gerber Baby and the first one with Down Syndrome. He was chosen from more than 140,000 entries in this year's photo contest, which has been a Gerber tradition for 91 years. Kristin Wooten, a spokeswoman for Gerber, told CNN. "Every year, since the beginning of the Gerber Baby Photo Search, we choose the baby who exemplifies Gerber's longstanding heritage of recognizing that every baby is a Gerber baby, and Lucas is a perfect fit," Lucas’ mom Cortney tells TODAY that she wants him to be seen as a fun loving happy child and not just one with down syndrome.
