I found the Magic Foundation after it was found that my daughter had a rare form of dwarfism called Meier-Gorlin Syndrome. We attended the annual convention that Magic holds in Lombard, IL the year of our diagnosis. The group welcomed us with open arms. My daughter was 9 years old at the time and was getting to the age where other kids started noticing the difference in her size. Spending the weekend with other kids that had Primordial Dwarfism was great for her. It was a place she felt safe and unjudged. Magic has also been an outstanding resource for me as well. I have received helpful information on insurance matters, education on Growth Hormone use, and many other useful tips and tricks. It is amazing to have a place to turn that truly understands our families struggles. We LOVE the Magic foundation and all it has done for our family.
