Oliver Garza-Pena is a cute little boy who will turn 2 years old next month. Unfortunately, he has caudal regression syndrome which impairs the development of his lower half of the body. He has to use a wheelchair to move around.
The little boy and his mom went to their local Target store in Arizona, when Olivier stopped at an ad displayed by kid's clothing - another little boy in a wheelchair!
Olivier was in complete awe of that advertisement. The mom said that she couldn't even break his gaze : "I could see the look on his face -- he knew that boy was like him," Demi Garza Pena told "Good Morning America."
The mom posted a picture of Oliver in front of the ad on a Facebook page she runs dedicated to her son - "Ollie's World". The post went quickly viral and inspired thousands of people.
This shows the importance of representative, especially for kids, in advertisement. Demi said : "Oliver sees kids every day, but he never gets to see kids like him. This was amazing!"
Take a look at Ollie's story.
We wish little Oliver many more happy moments!
Have you start seeing more representative ads at your local stores?
