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.

Today we picked strawberries.  Or rather, I picked, Kai ate.  It was FUN!  ...Now I'm just waiting for the diarrhea to start (Kai's, not mine). Proportionate to his body size, that kid ate WAY too many strawberries for his digestive tract.

Oh no! Hopefully there was no horrible episodes! Did you take any pics of him inhaling his berries?
