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.

"Mom. Watch."

video
Kai's new favorite thing is jumping.

My apologies for the bright light in the background.  I tried re-shooting this video later that evening with the light off but Kai wouldn't jump anymore.

He is so cute I can't even stand it!! What a little daredevil! And I loved all of his "Watch! Watch! Watch!" That is some precious jumping.

Audrey watched this with me and was laughing hysterically through the whole thing. We really need to get them together again!!

i just wanted to say thank you so much for posting this video. my daughter had dwarfism and after I saw this video (shortly after we were diagnosed) it honestly helped me see my daughter growing up and helped me fall in love with the fact she was little. thank you for making me smile. my daughter unfortunately died after birth, but i love seeing what would have been and imagining her doing such cute things.
