Kara and Adam Ayers are an incredibly happy couple who share a very distinct trait – they were both born with osteogenesis imperfecta, more commonly known as dwarfism.
When the couple decided to have a child, they knew that there was a 75% chance he or she would share the same condition… but that didn’t happen. Their daughter was born without dwarfism, making her now taller than her mother, who is just over 4 feet.
But Kara felt another maternal calling – to adopt a child who also has dwarfism “and teach them to embrace their condition and love who they are.” That’s when they found Eli – a little boy from child who had been sitting in an orphanage, “thinking that no one loved him.”
To see the family unite with their new son and brother is a true heart-wrencher. Love is pouring out from every direction and it really is contagious.
Take the Ayers’ story as an example of loving who you are and helping others to embrace who they are too.
