Zach Roloff’s wife Tori admits she got ‘extremely emotional’ over baby daughter’s dwarfism diagnosis at doctor’s office – The Sun
ZACH Roloff's wife Tori has opened up on the moment she found out their baby girl had been diagnosed with dwarfism, admitting that she was left "extremely emotional".
On Wednesday's episode of Little People Big World, fans saw Tori and Zach get told by doctors that their baby girl would have the same diagnosis as her father and brother.
Now, in a social media post, Tori admitted that although she tries to keep her pages "positive and uplifting", she was left feeling "guilty" over her emotions as she knew she would get to meet her baby girl when many other parents don't.
"I remember that morning so clearly. I was on social media and found out that a friend of mine who was a month further along than I was at the time, was having issues with her pregnancy. That day she found out that she may never get to meet her baby," shared Tori.
"I remember being so absolutely heartbroken for her and her family. So when I went to our doctor appointment and found out Lilah has dwarfism I remember feeling guilty for being worried.
"Because at least my daughter was healthy. At least I would get to hold her. I would get to meet her."
The 28-year-old mom of two added: "There are people out there that have way more difficult journeys than I do but that doesn’t discredit my own feelings. The same goes for everyone. It’s okay to feel whatever you’re going through.
"It was harder for me to process having a girl but to have a girl with dwarfism is new territory for me. It’s nerve-wracking for sure but I can already tell Lilah Ray is one tough girlsie."
Tori went on to thank fans for their positive support and shared "if I can help one other person it’s all worth it".
"And ps," she concluded, "my friends baby was born healthy as can be!!"
Tori gave birth to Lilah in November 2019 and later confirmed that her daughter also had dwarfism in a series of Instagram stories.
In this week's episode, fans saw Zach tell producers: "We were in a bit of a shock. It's a lot to process."
Tori was then seen leaving the doctor's office as she wiped away the tears, keeping it together for the sake of her husband and child.
Dwarfism is a genetic mutation that affects bone growth, and is generally defined as an adult height of four feet 10 inches or less.
