I stand at 4'11 and I have always wondered what it would be like to be a bit taller. To be able to reach that top shelf at the grocery store --- to be able to reach things without the help of a step ladder and so forth.
When, I found out the Dwarf was being printed, I had to read it. I was intrigued. I can't possibly imagine the pain and bravery that Tiffanie had to endure in order to gain inches on her limbs so that she could lead a "normal" life.
Tiffanie was born with diastorphic dysplasia and stopped growing at 3'8. Simple things we take for granted like reaching our ears and being able to wash our hands in the sink without help, were impossible for Tiffanie.
With the help and encouragement of her mother, Tiffanie underwent a variety of surgeries to extend the length of her limbs. She was able to reach the height of 4'10. She grew an unprecedented 13 inches.
This is her story, her struggles and her life. She is one determined individual, who is an inspiration for many.
This book is well written and flows. You will devour it within hours and you just might learn something.
