As of June, Miss Josie became an official member of The Little People of America (LPA). Since she was 7 months old we have known that she has a very rare form of dwarfism called Metatropic Dysplasia. She’s the 82nd recorded case in the world. October is the month that the LPA is claiming as National Dwarfism Awareness Month. It is officially recognized in 4 states, with a legal recognition in the making for each of the 50 states. The purpose can be found here.
So, this is Josie. We love her dearly. She is like every other child, except she’s a 1/6,000,000 kind of kid. :)
