Anyone have a child with a form of dwarfism?

I asked this question a long time ago. I have 4 boys and my youngest has a form of dwarfism called Achondroplasia. I was just wondering if any other Little People moms have join cafe mom since the first time I asked the question. This is my son David, he's 5 years old.

  • Not here, but he's a little stud! He actually looks a LOT like a kid here in town - do people with the same forms tend to have similarities to their looks? I know this kid (well, he's a teenager now) is a dwarf, he says it flat-out, but I've never asked what kind. Sorry if it's a stupid question, I've never known anyone else even related to someone with any form of dwarfism.

  • not here either but man is he a cute little guy!!! I did work in a preschool program andwe had a little one with another kind of dwarfism although I cant remember what kind but at 4 she was delayed intalking ( I think she only really started talking t 3 ) and was a late walker but she was the spuinikiest kid I know! Your son looks like he has a little spunk in him as well!!!!

  • Ha Ha....spunk is a very mild term for him! What he lacks in height he more than makes up for in attitude and personality!
