Hello, My daughter is very very small. She was also born with Gastroschesis and Arthrogriposis in just her arms. Sometimes kiddo's with these things are a bit smaller, but she is an extream case of smallness. The doctors have tested her hormones and have been monitoring her, she is healthy. no mental illness, very smart actually despite her physical disability. anyways, anyone else have a child that is this small? I get worried a lot. She isn't growing any faster now then ever. She was premature, born 5 weeks early, born at 5lbs7oz. I have been researching rare growing deseases because I was told to keep searching, but she's not as extream as the 6 year old in a 6 month old body(gabby) or the 40 year old in a 10 year old body case. not sure what to think. any thoughts?

thank you!
