Dwarfism Post # 17

I have 13 nieces and nephews. Usually around the age of 5 when they start to realize they are growing taller than I am- that is when I get the questions. That’s when they ask “Why don’t you grow taller?” “Why am I taller than you now?”

Just like any other child I explain to them that God made me to where I don’t grow taller. But I tell them that I am in fact older than they are.

When I am out in public with my nieces and nephews and they see someone staring at me, they tell me that they see the kids staring but I always love how they say it…”Monica that kids staring at you, why are they staring?” Simply by growing up around me they have learned that everyone is different, but that doesn’t mean we should treat others differently.
