Hi Everyone…

When I was young I asked my mother, why do people stare at me, why do they laugh, why do they nudge at each other when i pass by…Am i different than others. She used to say…You are Special! As I was growing older i began to realize that i was slow in growth, my limbs were short…This time I realized the truth, so I asked my mom why am I different than others, her answer was ‘God took his own time for you and created you in a special mould.’

I still believe those words!

I would like to meet people with the same condition and share experiences…trust me I have loads to tell…
