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.

This is no less than a miracle for us and we are so grateful for it!
Additionally, Kai had a great support team here: his physical therapist Eileen, his pediatrician Dr. Farrah, and all the fantastic people at Shriners Portland. We are so glad to get them back!
