We have been members of Little People UK (LPUK) from day one, Georgie was 16 months old when we went to our first meeting so she has never known life without LPUK. She loves going to the get togethers and always says "I'm going to see my friends like me". It helps us all so much meeting families like ours who are full of great advice and support and it gives Georgie great role models and the attitude that you can go on and do anything you put your mind to. We have made Georgie aware of who she is and the condition she has she is proud to be a little person and I have often heard her explaining to people who ask why she is small and her reply is " I am a little person my bones grow really slow and I will never be very tall" this has happened a few times at school where she has been asked if she's a baby and her reply is the same she explains that she has dwarfism. We have always been really positive about it and so is she and that is down to the support we get from little people uk. She is very proud to be part of little people uk and when we have been raising awareness and fundraising she has always loved every minute of being centre of attention and being part of something big.
LPUK means the world to us it is our extended family.
