Charli Kate Adams, born with Achondroplasia, and her partner, Cullen, with Geleophysic Dysplasia, faced criticism for their decision to have children, given the potential genetic complexities. Despite undergoing genetic testing revealing various outcomes, they chose to proceed, defying the odds.

Facing the possibility of a fatal outcome due to double dominant dwarfism, the couple’s pregnancies surpassed expectations. Charli carried two “beautiful” daughters and a son with Dwarfism to term, delivering via Caesarean section.

Remaining active during pregnancies helped Charli mitigate spinal pressure. She acknowledges criticism but hopes sharing her story fosters understanding: “[…] bringing a child into this world with my odds is no simple decision and it’s all about being kind.”

Despite the family’s distinctive appearance and acknowledged challenges due to their short stature, the Adamses maintain a light-hearted attitude, inspiring others born with Dwarfism. Their story exemplifies resilience, proving that, while not without difficulties, life with Dwarfism can be lived with joy and determination.
