I have just found out - she is a little person. She is on a reality show with her family. They basically show the world that little people can do just fine. I saw one show of her family where they took in a family of five (I believe) from either Iraq or Afghanistan (sorry don't remember which country) where all the children had physical ailments that would not be able to be dealt with in their own country. Very caring person.

Apparently she is doing a cruise. I haven't seen too much on it yet but it is legitimate.

The Roloff's have a reality series on TLC or TDC. They are two little people with three children. Two children are normal sized and one is a little person. The show documents their lives. Both of the parents are active advocates for little people. The father was instrumental in adding accessories for height challenged people in Radisson and other hotels.

The father is a real entrepreneur and I know many people would love to have his enthusiasm and resourcefulness.

Take care,
Mike

Her and her husband were on my Mariner of the seas cruise in 2005. (October 2nd through 9th) This was right before their reality series. They had done a one hour documentary on TLC, and I had seen it. I kept seeing them as we had an atruim statroom on deck 7 and they had a balcony room down the hall from us. I finally asked them if I had seen them on TLC, and they said yes, and told me about the upcoming reality series.

We even have Amy Roloff on video at the Nassau zoo. They had her and my daughter both participate in the "march of the flamingos." She and my daughter were the only adults chosen to participate in that march.

That same cruise we had about 300 LP total. I am not sure if they had a convention, or if simply they had booked together as a group of friends. We also had a bunch of "purple hat" ladies. That was an interesting cruise.
