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.

Halloween 2009

So much fun. Kai was the cutest little gingerbread man.

Big sister Ashleigh was a bride.

John was an army guy, I was a gypsie, and Hailey was a witch. We didn't plan for John to stand in front of the plant with his camo-painted face. He blends in pretty well, doesn't he?


This is Kai's favorite girl, Britanie.
