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.

Three shots. Two legs. A whole lotta Tylenol.

Yesterday Kai turned two months old so I treated him to a visit to his pediatrician's where he received his routine two month old immunizations. He is still in the 0 percentile for length, at about 17 inches long, but he's in the 10th percentile for weight at 9 lbs 10.5 oz--he's in the percentiles now! Hooray for Kai!
