This condition means that the person affected with it is considerably smaller, compared to other people. Her mother was interviewed on TV in 2015, stating “when she was born she was perfect, she was just miniature.” Which is the reason behind her developing the nickname Thumbelina.
Unfortunately, Kenadie had part of her brain missing, which added to the reasons the doctors believed she wouldn’t survive. Her family decided to have the baby girl baptised straight away, as they were not anticipating her to live for much longer. Her mother lovingly stated, “she was chubby and she had pink skin. Her eyes were bright.”
Unfortunately, it seemed as though the doctors were sending little Kenadie home with Brianne to die. Brianne said, ‘it was like mourning – the idea of all the life that you imagined for your child has suddenly been taken away.” This was the sad realisation Brianne was having to adjust to for her daughter.
