Video: A Little Boy With Dwarfism Is Teaching the World How To Be Big

Aleteia - published on 02/05/15

A video to help tear down barriers between people.

The first time Grant crawled all the way up the stairs was monumental. "It took him 45 minutes, but he would not be stopped." says his father, Nate. "I cried watching him and have been humbled by him many times since." Grant, who is now six, has a form of dwarfism called Diastrophic Dysplasia. It's just one of many forms of dwarfism and people with this condition are referred to as "Little People." In this homemade documentary, Grant shows his determination, his love for life, and his wisdom. Grant may have a little body, but he has a huge heart. It was the family’s hope that making the video will help to tear down walls between little people and people of average height— and between all people.
