Miles Ambridge left out of class photo – Despite the controversy of this act what has happened from it is nothing short of heartwarming. A little boy is happy and still unaware of the problems that an orignal class photo caused.
The internet went a bit crazy when 7-year-old Miles Ambridge, who is in a wheelchair and suffers from spinal muscular atrophy, was pictured in his wheelchair off to one-side separated from his class!
The school class photo was obviously not right and he could be seen leaning into the class, like he wanted to be included.
In cases like this freedom to share and speak really excels. The parents were unhappy with the shot and obviously bewildered as to why the photographer thought this composition was ok. On defence of the photographer it could have been a complete genuine mistake and serious brain fart. Hopefully they have learned a lesson!
Unaware of the controversy Miles Ambridge has been given a new photo. The photo was redone with Miles sitting out of his chair with the class in the front row.

Of course some criticism has been made that Miles was removed from his chair but his parents gave that their blessing saying that the first thing he does when he gets home is get out of his chair to sit on the sofa.
Miles never saw the old photo but reportedly was over the moon with the new one.
A very happy ending and a lesson learned.
More details and both pictures can be seen in the Huffington Post.
