Pictures: Meet The Largest Family Of Achondroplasia Dwarfs



To the world they may look different from
everyone else. But for the Johnston family,
the only difference between them and
everyone else is that they are a little smaller.
Amber and Trent Johnson, from Barnesville,
Georgia, and their five children are the
largest family of achondroplasia dwarfs,
with a type of dwarfism that affects the
extremities.
They call themselves 'the real life seven
dwarfs' and embrace their size, and say
they 'strive to raise their children in the
world that's not built for them'. Trent came
from a family of dwarfs, but Amber's family
were full size. They knew there was a
possibility that their first child could be full
size, but at 31 weeks discovered Jonah also
had achondroplasia dwarfism.
