Terra Jole of "Little Women: LA" takes great pride in her two beautiful children. Things have, however, not been too easy due to their many health complications.
Like most of the other women on the famous Lifetime show, Terra is a family woman. Her husband of many years, Joe Gnoff, who is also a little person, features on the reality show.
Their lovely family, which includes their two biological kids, is one that always leaves their fans in awe. They have two adorable children: daughter Penny and son Grayson.
LITTLE PENNY SUFFERS FROM ACHONDROPLASIA LIKE HER MOTHER
For little people, the chances of their offspring being little are not always sure. For Jole and Gnoffo, however, it seemed almost certain since they both suffered from dwarfism, albeit of different types.
Penny Charlevoix Gnoffo is the oldest of the couple's children. She was born on March 2015 and is known to have achondroplasia like her mother. Never one to shy away from the media, Jole is known to share pictures and videos of little Penny on Instagram frequently.
From adorable photoshoots to everyday life photos, Jole has everything covered. It is perhaps one of the reasons why she seems to have more media presence when compared to the other little women.
Her strong personality is admirable, considering the many health challenges Penny has especially faced. Jole has revealed that aged four, Penny still isn't walking correctly and that doctors have attributed that to the extra fluid in her brain.
It is never easy for a mother to watch her baby experience something difficult while still so young, but Jole has proven to be brave through it all.
JOLE HAS ALSO COME TO ACCEPT HER SON'S DWARFISM BUT KNOWS IT WON'T BE EASY
Grayson Vincent D'Artagnan Gnoffo, born August 2016 is Jole's second child. He suffers from pseudoachondroplasia like his father, and while his condition seems to be better than his sister's, Jole has shared that it will be challenging.
She said, while speaking to PEOPLE:
"Being little may be challenging at times, but it has made us who we are today. It won't always be easy. It won't always be hard, but embracing dwarfism will hopefully be instilled in both of our children."
Like Penny, pictures of little Grayson litter Jole's Instagram page. If nothing else, her love for her family has endeared her to so many people.
