The Real Life Thumbelina

Image 1 / 7

‘Real Life Thumbelina’ is the story of two year old Kenadie Jourdin, a girl who weighs just four pounds and is only 61 centimetres long. Kenadie has been diagnosed as a primordial dwarf – an extremely rare type of dwarfism - and she is one of only 30 in the world. Doctors cannot explain why she is so little or what the future may hold for her. Kenadie's parents are determined this small but mighty toddler will live as full a life as possible. She goes to day care with other children her own age and is already finding ways to make a place for herself in a world designed for much taller people.
