Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley, known around the world as “the littlest angel”, was born February 13, 2003. She was 2lbs 8oz and 11 inches long.
Doctors were at a loss as to why she was born so small and told her parents this little miracle baby likely wouldn’t live through the night. But she did. On the first day of her fourth week of life Kenadie was sent home with the expectation that her parents would watch her fade. She continued to defy doctors’ expectations and at the age of 8 months, Kenadie was finally diagnosed with primordial dwarfism, a genetic condition that is believed to affect only about 100 people in the world. She wasn’t expected to grow past about 30 inches or weigh more than 8 pounds. But from the day Kenadie was born her parents, Brianne Jourdin and Court Bromley, refused to give up. As they say, “We loved life right into her.”
Indeed, they did.
Today, Kenadie has just passed her 8th birthday, 33 inches tall and 16.5 lbs. Kenadie goes to school and is has just completed grade 2 with other children her own age.
Kenadie walks, runs, laughs, smiles, talks, dances and sings. But, perhaps more importantly, it’s the way Kenadie makes people feel that is her strongest achievement. Those who come into contact with her invariably believe that they have been touched by God, that somehow this little angel has touched their soul.
She may be small but no one would argue that this little girl has an enormous effect on people throughout the world.
