Caroline's Cart, the shopping cart for special needs children created by Alabaster mom Drew Ann Long, will soon be found in Target stores nationwide.

The retail giant has been testing the carts in some stores for the past year and has decided to roll them out to the vast majority of stores across the U.S. beginning in March.

Caroline's Cart can also be found in hundreds of other stores, including Publix, Kroger, Wegmans, ShopRite and more. The carts are in stores in every state, and in other countries, including Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Norway.

But Target is the largest chain to take it nationwide.

Long, who started a grassroots effort to gain a national audience for Caroline's Cart eight years ago, said she is thrilled with Target's decision and believes it will prompt even more retailers to follow suit.
