Small but mighty!

I so often get questions about having a child with dwarfism.  AS our little man gets older we encounter different issues.  THis is the really the first year that we now are seeing a significant difference in size.  Of course little man is my sports kid.  He lives through sports, and due to his progressively deteriorating joints we never know when he will "peak" but we do know it will be young.  So despite the recommendations from his doctors to limit his sports, I also have to weigh that against his heart.  DO we crush his spirit or give him the glory of playing for a few years atleast.  This has by far been the hardest part of this journey.

Oh why could little man not have been born with a love for sitting quietly and drawing!

But when I see these pictures I know that we have made the right decision.  He may miss playing sports later in life but atleast he will have had the opportunity to shine.
