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.

Bullying and Special Needs

A 10-year old autistic boy was bullied at his school--by his teacher and teacher aids!  Following is a link to the video the boy's dad made regarding the bullying and the "action" the school took.  It's long (nearly 20 minutes) but it's worth it.  


Watch Here


For the first half of the video I was in shock.  By the second half I was in tears.  What are your thoughts?
