Tiffanie DiDonato was born with dwarfism. Her limbs were extremely short preventing her from even reaching her own ears. To achieve independence, she underwent a series of painful bone-lengthening surgeries that gave her an unprecedented 14 inches of height--and the independence she never thought she'd have. After her surgeries, Tiffanie was able to learn to drive, to live in the dorms during college, and to lead a normal life. As a volunteer during the War in Iraq, she wrote to the men stationed abroad. Specifically, she became a pen pal to one of the Marines, and because of this relationship, he ultimately became her husband. In this book, she wrote: "It's okay with me if you picked up this book because you're curious about what it's like to live with dwarfism. But I hope that you'll take away much more--about freedom, finding independence, and adapting to the world when it won't adapt to you."
