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.

He is so precious:)
I'm impressed by his ability to hold things in his own way.
He's a clever boy, as well as cute.

I cannot believe he is growing up so fast. And how amazing his fine motor skills! I love that LPs learn to do things and hold writing instruments/paint brushes in their own ways! Hats off to cute Kai.
