The Johnstons, a family of achondroplasia dwarfs, call themselves the real-life seven dwarfs. Mom Amber and dad Trent, who have two biological and three adopted dwarf children, say they wrote to the show to share their story, because it's important for them to educate others.
Amber explains what it's like when people ask to take their picture. "I think sometimes people look at us a lot of times with other shows being on TV they think we're that show," says Amber.
