The Little Couple

I have a lot to say about what is done wrong with regard to the portrayal of people with disabilities, but The Little Couple is a great example of accurate and empowering portrayal of people with disabilities. They live their everyday lives and adapt things as they go. Great, great people. I love watching their show because it’s accurate and they’re not portrayed as overly inspirational for living their lives. Definitely recommend watching their show if you’d like insight into people with skeletal dysplasia, or just general knowledge about how people are able to adapt in various circumstances. This is an early episode, and since then, they have adopted two children who have skeletal dysplasia as well.
