Jen and Bill's dwarfism
Arnold and Klein both have skeletal dysplasia (osteochondrodysplasia), a genetic disorder of the development of a person’s bone and cartilage. This disease is mostly known as dwarfism. The term skeletal dysplasia includes hundreds of conditions related to bone and cartilage growth. Arnold is 3'2" and Klein is 4' tall.
The couple had troubles with conceiving and went for adoption in 2013. Arnold and Klein wanted to adopt a child with special needs because of their own experiences with dwarfism.
They welcomed Will in March and Zoey in October. The two have dwarfism as well as their new parents. Surprisingly, between these two adoptions, Jen discovered she was pregnant. Unfortunately, after a visit to their doctor, the couple learned that the pregnancy was nonviable due to Jennifer’s condition.
