A heartbreaking photograph of a young boy in a wheelchair, who has been physically separated from the rest of his class and is eagerly leaning in towards his peers, is going viral. Fast.
Miles Ambridge, 7, is the adorable boy on the far right, beaming and trying as hard as he can to be a part of the group, who are neatly assembled on three wooden benches without him.
Miles has spinal muscular atrophy, which keeps him confined to a wheelchair but has no affect on his cognitive abilities. And that’s why his parents didn’t want to show him this photo.
Apparently Miles was really excited for picture day but his parents told their local Canadian paper The Province that they thought their son would be deeply hurt if he saw the photo, as he’s “profoundly aware that he’s different than his peers”.
