Mother devastated after son in wheelchair left to the side in class photo delighted by retaken picture – photos

ANNE Belanger was upset by her son’s school class photo. The picture showed her seven-year-old son Miles with his Grade 2 classmates at Herbert Spencer Elementary in  New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada. But he was apart from them, ostracised from the group in his wheelchair.  She wanted the picture retaken. She said:
