A Proclamation

We have some exciting news to share!

Taken from LPA:

“Little People of America proudly congratulates the state of New York for recognizing October as Dwarfism Awareness Month.  In celebration, on April 19, a group of supporters from Little People of America in New York met with Assemblywoman Nancy Calhoun for the official passing of the proclamation at the New York State Capitol Building. Through the leadership of Assemblywoman Calhoun and LPA leaders in the State, New York will be the sixth state to dedicate the month of October as Dwarfism Awareness Month.”

Hooray!  How excited we were to be a part of such a special day!  Seamus and I spent the day with many of our wonderful LPA friends, including the Weissers, DePauls, Korpais, Sikes, and Mooneys.
