Dwarfism Post #9

I’ve had many people ask me if I’ve ever thought of having children of my own. I decided at a young age that I would not physically have children of my own. I always said I’d adopt if I decided to have children. When I was a young adult doctors advised against me having children. The risks were to high, not only for me but also for the child.

This is how it works for little people if they have children.

If the person has a dominant Gene, and decides to be with a person who has the SAME type of dwarfism OR be with an average height person, its 50/50
-50% chance of having the same type of dwarfism
-50% chance of being average height

If two people with DIFFERENT types of DOMINANT dwarfism Gene its 25% chance.
-25% of one form of dwarfism
-25% of the other form of dwarfism
-25% of being average height
-25% of having BOTH forms of dwarfism. We call this double dwarf. This will cause a bit more medical issues and possible learning delays.

Saul Wilson Syndrome is a dominant gene.

I don’t have children of my own but I have 13 nieces and nephews who I love just as if they were my own!
