Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley, known around the world as “the littlest angel”, was born Feb.13, 2003, weighing just 2 lbs, 8 ounces.
Doctors were at a loss as to why she was born so small and told her parents this little miracle baby likely wouldn’t live through the night. But she did.
She continued to defy doctors expectations and at the age of 8 months, Kenadie was finally diagnosed with primordial dwarfism, a genetic condition that is believed to affect only about 100 people in the world. She isn’t expected to grow past about 30 inches or weigh more than 8 pounds.”
I love checking up on Kenadie through the website her family has created for her. It’s clear that she has an unbelievably big personality – her Photo Gallery gives you a perfect introduction to her. And she is teeny tiny. One of a few anomalies that still exist.

Kenadie is a rising star! She has been cast in a Dutch film called “Iep!” or “Bird”: “a story based on a children’s book about a bird watcher who discovers a small girl with wings under a tree and nurses her back to health with his wife.” Read the full article about Kenadie’s movie debut
I know she will be perfect in the role and the movie sounds so interesting. A lot of my dolls go to the Netherlands so I can see that they like the creative and different. Can’t wait for the trailer!
