Tori Roloff Opens up about a Recent Event That Made Her Son Jackson's Differences Noticeable
Tori Roloff, of “Little People, Big World,” took to social media to share an emotional story about her child's dwarfism.
The famous reality star posted a beautiful photo of herself and her husband, Zach walking with their little son, Jackson between them. The picture only shows Tori’s legs while more of Zach and Jackson, who suffer dwarfism, can be seen.
A heartfelt message accompanies the picture and has the 27-year-old narrating a recent incident where little Jackson couldn't get to do all he wanted at a local festival as his age mates could.
The Roloff family, headed by Matt and Amy Roloff, are known to suffer dwarfism predominantly, but Tori herself isn't one. Two-year-old Jackson is her first and only child, the product of her marriage to Zach, one of Matt and Amy Roloff’s children.
Known for their famous show, the Roloffs never shy away from the media and live their lives the best they can. The same is for Zach’s growing family, and Tori discloses that she “forgets” Jackson's condition because he could do many things like other kids his age. She said:
“I forget that he’s different because he’s so capable and I see nothing other than my mister mister.”
The message went on with the reality star explaining that reality dawned on her at the festival when Jackson couldn't get on the rides he wanted because of fixed height specifications. Tori went on to explain that it was even more sad for her than it was for the little child. She wrote:
"It was harder for me than it was for him for sure. It was really the first time I was hit in the face with the fact my child is different.”
The ever-doting mother and wife finished off with words of encouragement for Zach and Jackson. She said:
“I'm so proud of my husband and his outlook on it all and even more proud of my son who brushes things off with ease, and I pray they both continue to do this. In the words of Jeremy Roloff: if a bad attitude would fix it- I would have one.”
So far, Jackson has been growing really well and has even reportedly reached all the necessary milestones at about the time other kids his age did.
He is a cheery kid that always makes his parents proud and just recently, the beautiful couple announced that he would be a big brother real soon as they are expecting a baby due November this year.
