In recent years, Disney has added a few princesses like Tiana, Merida and Elsa to expand its time-honored lineup.
But a California couple says there's still one kind of princess missing, according to Jezebel.
Keston Ott-Dahl and her partner Andrea are petitioning Disney to create a special needs princess so that their 16-month-old daughter, who has Down Syndrome -- and others like her -- can have a Disney role model, too.
"[Disney] has long provided wonderful moral lessons that teach our children to be good people -- but sadly, the company comes up short in one critical area," the online petition description reads. "Its movies have almost no representation of disabled people, those often bullied and looked down upon by their fellow children."
Like other children, Delaney loves animated movies and Disney princesses in particular, according to Daily Mail. Her mothers only hope that she be able to look up to someone like herself and they hope Disney will represent children with Down syndrome in its films.
"What wonderful lessons of diversity, compassion, and acceptance Disney could teach our kids if they promoted disabled characters as heroes and heroines in their beloved movies!" the petition continues.
The call to action has garnered more than 62,000 signatures and counting -- and mom Keston couldn't be more thrilled.
"My frying pan is just getting warmed up. I want to do everything in my power to make sure that Delaney knows she is included in society, that she has worth and is amazing," she wrote on her website.
