10 weeks - can’t wait to wear this vest!
please have a read or visit www.littlepeopleuk.org and if you would like to please donate. Thank you to everyone who has shown their support so far!
I have signed up to the Lakeland 50(50 mile trail run) in July to raise awareness and hopefully some funds for Little People UK. To help support them as they have our family. Our daughter was born with Achondroplasia a skeletal condition which causes dwarfism. Annabelle is full of life, happy, healthy and cheeky! just like any other 4 year old however I have always been aware of the many physical and social barriers she will face as time goes on. When Annabelle was diagnosed at 9 months I couldn’t look too far into the future without feeling worried about the struggles she will be faced with and didn’t feel like we really had anyone to turn to for advice (which I know sounds completely crazy as we have amazing family and friends). I felt no one was quite in the same boat or fully understood our situation or Annabelle’s condition. That was until last August, when we were introduced to Little People UK and attended our first LPUK convention. It was finally an opportunity for us to speak to other parents, a specialist medical team and the highlight for me personally was having the opportunity to speak to and learn from some inspirational young women, with the same condition as Annabelle. For the first time since Annabelle was born we felt like we belonged. LPUK is an amazing charity that is passionate about raising awareness, increasing social acceptance and supporting individuals with all types of dwarfism and their families. Please read the justgiving page or take a look at www.littlepeopleuk.org to learn more about Dwarfism and help raise awareness. If you can please donate to this amazing charity that I know will be such a positive influence in our lives..Thank you.
