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.

I Wish...

...I would've taken a picture of Kai's face yesterday when, in a store, a lady came up to us and started talking to him in baby talk--EVEN AFTER I told her he was three years old.  His face was a perfect mix of disgust and incredulity.  It was priceless.

Gotta love that... Sonya once told a lady (who did the same thing to her despite me telling her that she's 4) that "the baby you wanted to talk to is over there" and pointed to a baby in her infant car seat in the front of a shopping cart. Hilarious moment. I love the previous post of Kai in all his cuteness! "ABC trashcan" - how adorable! Congrats on your pregnancy too! How exciting!! Kai is going to make a wonderful big brother!!
