At 26 gestational weeks, after an amniocentesis and genetic testing, he was diagnosed with Diastrophic Dysplasia, a rare type of dwarfism.

Now 8 years old, our son Kai is happy, healthy, and enjoying life.

The purpose of this blog is to lend support and encouragement to others in similar situations and to share the tremendous experiences we've had and will continue to have as we raise our little, little boy.

Kai de la Cruz Rivas

He's here! Born October 3, 2008 at 6:45 pm, weighing 5 lbs 3 oz and measuring 15 inches long, our sweet baby Kai is here!
Despite being a month early, he is very healthy and was able to come home with me when I was discharged on the 5th.
