"Society has tended to look at dwarfism as a disease, when it should be viewed as an example of diversity. We will address whatever medical problems come up, but these are not children who are broken and need to be cured. They have the same needs and capacities as every other child. They just happen to be short.” - Dr. Michael Goldberg
