Welcome to my blog!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit! We hope to share with you our journey of raising a child with Achondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism. If this is your first time here, please start by reading Caitlyn's Story. It will share the beginning of her life with you. Enjoy!

POLP Swim Meet-Up

I met Sarah Frey on Facebook shortly after her daughter Tessa was born and diagnosed with Achondroplasia – so maybe 14-15 months ago.  They lived on the East Coast and we met them in person in Nashville at the LPA National Convention last summer.  They recently moved from the east coast to the west coast (Arizona) however Sarah grew up in Escalon, which is a tiny town in the central valley of CA and and along the way to our cabin in Pinecrest. 

Sarah let myself and Melisa know that she and Tessa would be out in CA and passing through Sacramento in July.  Melisa invited us, along with Kerri and Madilynn (who couldn’t make it) to get together for a POLP (parents of little people) get together at their community pool.

Tessa is quite the cutie and was very shy – it was a short amount of time that we were together so we didn’t get to see her as her mom described her – full of energy and non-stop talking.

Here’s Hanna cruising around

Caty telling Aidan to come swim with me – although it was more walking around because the pool was only a foot deep
