Kelly and Zac were blindsided when tests showed that their newborn son, Everett, had Achondroplasia– a form of Dwarfism. They grieved for the life they thought they were going to have; and were fearful for a life they knew nothing about. They found peace and hope through God, and learned not to be fearful for the future. They intensely love their son, and have built a community of support for their family. They consider themselves blessed to be Everett’s parents.
Advice and guidance from medical professionals and internet searches can only go so far, and the information and images are often scary. The best source of information, to know what it’s really like to have a child with a disability or life-long condition, is from another parent who has a similar child. We are honored and inspired by the parents who have shared their story with us. They inform and encourage others, in similar circumstances, just starting their journey.
We are actively collecting and updating new stories.
We welcome you to check back often, and to share your story. If you or someone you know has a story to share, please contact us to add your story.
