World's smallest mom

Stacey Herald, 36, from Kentucky, is only 2-feet, 4-inches tall and has osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), also known as brittle bone disease. The genetic disorder has caused multiple fractures in her bones that have stunted her growth and confined her most of the time to a wheelchair. Even when doctors warned Herald should never have risked having children due to her small pelvis, together, Herald and her husband Wil Herald are raising Kateri, 3, Makaya, 2, and Malachi, who is only 7 months old. The oldest and youngest have OI, but the middle daughter is average height and now stands a foot taller than her mother.
