Luke 1: 37

Instead of posting loads of dwarfism anatomy facts, I decided to share some of my favorite verses of encouragement for the month of October. I think each picture captures Leahs personality perfectly; what you see is what you get… Leah is a happy, fun loving little girl, always smiling and affectionate, she is truly an amazing kid!



What makes October so special

Its October! and its a very special month for all LP’s and POLP their families and friends, and its a extra special month for the Kay family because its Leah’s birthday month, can you believe that our Little Leah will soon be celebrating her 8th Birthday in the month of October which happens to be Dwarfism Awareness Month!!!
Although things are still the same in South Africa as far as recognition for Dwarfism, we as always will continue to raise awareness and share Leah with the world and we hope that someday things will change for us, we hope that more LP’s and POLP citizens of South Africa will step out and be active in raising awareness, but for now we will wear our green ribbons with pride and celebrate our beautiful little Leah Kay.
So from all of us in South Africa and all our Raising Leah followers we wish our LP families every success while we continue to educate the world about Dwarfism!

“A” Day at Red Cross Childrens Hospital in Cape Town

I know we have been missing in action for a while, but Im still here…. I really should get here more often but Miss Leah seems to keep me very busy these days… so I thought i would make our return post a picture post, and what could be better than a picture of some of our beautiful LP kids.We recently met up at our annual genetics visit, we call it  “A Day”. I was really excited to meet all the new POLP in Cape Town, and I hope we get to meet up real soon.
