Check Out 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.
