Blogging about life in Minnesota, raising our six kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

The Shirt

Angela wanted me to be sure to post a picture of her Halloween shirt.

I often run into people who read my blog, and they're always surprised at how small Angela is. I guess I forget until someone comments about it. 

It is very common for people with Down syndrome to be short statured. There are 200 medical disorders, including Down syndrome, that can cause dwarfism , which is considered to be anyone of short stature under 58 inches tall). Angela is 56 inches tall.

She looks very pretty in her halloween shirt. Shortness runs in my family, as well as my ex's both our mom's are about 59 inches. I've been telling people all along it just means she'll fit in great.

My sister used to have a shirt that said "I'm not short, I'm fun-sized!"

I never notice how short Angela is because she's usually standing next to you in pictures and your not exactly tall :-).

Plus, her personality is so big, she just feels taller.
