Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley, who was born in Ontario, Canada, seemed like any other kid.
She went to school, liked art and sports, and had big plans for the future.
But there was one thing that made Kenadie different from her classmates: she is only 99 centimeters tall…
It is said that Kenadie weighed only 2.5 pounds when she was born in February 2023.
The doctors quickly found out that she had a very rare type of heart disease—only 100 people are thought to have it in the whole world.
The nurses appropriately referred to her as “Thumbelina.”
Kenadie didn’t have a good chance of staying alive.
According to reports, her condition can lead to problems like poor mental development, lung diseases, and digestive issues.
Doctors at the hospital where the girl was born were afraid she would only live a few days because she had brain injuries.
Of course, her parents were heartbroken. Because they wanted their daughter to have a name if and when she died, they chose to christen her the same day she was born.
“We thought we were going to take her home to die, because that’s what the doctors told us,” mom Brianne told Barcroft TV back in 2016.
Still, the days went by, and Kenadie wouldn’t give up. It looked like she wasn’t going to make it, but she did, and her parents soon began to believe that she would. It was nothing less than a miracle for them.
Even now, after many years, Kenadie still surprises everyone she meets.
She’s only 99 centimeters tall, her legs and arms are still not fully grown, and she has trouble learning new things. But she’s a happy girl who loves life.
Reports say that Kenadie loves bowling and ice dancing. The best thing about her is that she makes everyone happy.
“Kenadie makes me laugh. She’s very empathetic; if you hurt your finger she comes and gives you a hug. She’s got an infectious laugh that makes you want to laugh along with her,” Kenadie’s assistant Jessica Putnam told Barcroft TV in 2016.
Of course, Kenadie, her family, and I face new problems all the time. The little girl has health issues all the time, but her family and friends try to take things one day at a time.
“My hope for Kenadie’s future– my biggest hope for her– is I want her to be happy. I want her to smile and be successful. If we can get through today, then we’ll see about tomorrow,” her mom said.
We’re excited to share Kenadie’s uplifting story!
