Arnold was diagnosed with spondyloepohyseal dysplasia, type Strudwick, signifying her specific type of dwarfism, and despite her harrowing beginnings, Arnold has always been optimistic. “I wasn’t unhappy being a Little Person. Being a Little Person has always been and will always be normal to me. Even at a young age, I was used to the challenge of being a Little Person in an average-sized world […] My parents always reminded me to count my blessings ad be grateful for the things that were good in my life,” she wrote in her book she co-authored with her husband.
