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.

LOL I love these! That last video, towards the beginning, right before you ask him what he's doing- the look he gives is TOTALLY a Halien look. I could watch these all day!

Both Haylie and Connor said, as we started watching, "Mom, are we ever gonna live by our cousins again?" :) Miss you guys!

Nicole said...

Ah I love it! He is so cute!

wow, he is doing awesome! I love how well he's getting around, we'll have to show your video to Shriners next time we go. Grant has one foot that will go flat on the floor but the other won't, so I worry about his knees with the way he has to walk. Grant LOVED seeing Kai! He said "you have Kai on your computer! I want to watch the Kai show again and again and again. I think that computer should be MY computer!" Lol.
