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.

BACK ONLINE

Today we got internet in our little apartment (yay!). And not a moment too soon, because today is August 3, which, as you all know, means that Kai is ten months old today! Happy un-birthday, son!
Here he is, trying to take a bite out of the table.

My parents live in Samammish, WA and we try to drive up and visit them once a year. It would be fun to get Kai and Grant together one of those times! Kai's looking great!

I am so excited to have found your blog!! Our little ones are so close in age (Daphne's birthday is 12-24), and we live in Portland, so we're practically neighbors. They thought Daphne had DD, but the genetic test came back negative. She has the same feet issues as Kai, though! Ahh, the plaster casts. And the leg braces. So fun. Thanks for sharing your story!
