Congratulations on your baby!! I have a 5 year old daughter with achondroplasia. She is a happy little girl. Very independent. She has had some problems but she is doing well. She went in today to get fitted for braces for her legs. She thinks it is going to be cool. :-) Just take it one day at a time. Your child will bring you so much joy. Remember.... each child is different in his or her own way.
