Anything’s possible, think big - advises teen with Dwarfism
DO whatever you want in life, nothing can stop you.
That's what Bailey Connor's parents told him when he was growing up.
And being diagnosed with Achondroplasia, more commonly known as Dwarfism, when he was four weeks old hasn't stopped him following their advice.
It's a message he wanted to share when he wrote to Ross and Jade Morley at the weekend.
Their adorable son Floyd-Henry, who turns one in July, was diagnosed with Achondroplasia at five months old.
Ross and Jade shared the news with friends and family through a video on Facebook.
Since then, the couple have continued to document Floyd-Henry's journey online.
In March, their story was published in Women's Weekly and they have recorded a segment with television show 60 Minutes which will air in coming months.
After Bailey, a Year 10 student at The Cathedral College, read the Women's Weekly article he decided to offer his support.
When his heartfelt message was posted on Facebook, it attracted more than 2100 likes.
Bailey said he was surprised so many people read the post, which congratulated Ross and Jade on sharing their story with the world.
He said he wanted the couple to know there were people all over Australia supporting them and that the sky was the limit for little Floyd-Henry.
"Nothing will hold you back," Bailey said.
"As long as you've got the drive and passion to do something, you can do it.
"Showing (people) you can do it is the greatest feeling."
Bailey said Achondroplasia had never stopped him doing things he loved, including drumming in several bands.
He hopes to become a diesel fitter when he finishes school, before studying to become a music teacher.
Jade told The Morning Bulletin Bailey's message gave them inspiration for Floyd-Henry's future.
"To be a 15-year-old boy and be so positive and happy is beautiful," she said.
