What is more interesting about this family is that they have multi-cultural children who are a mix of American, Siberian, Chinese and South Korean who are no more than four feet tall.
The couple had just two biological children named Jonah and Elizabeth while the rest of them are the adopted ones. As their first two kids also suffered from this disease which affects the extremities, they decided to adopt instead of going through more traumatic pregnancies.
They had always wanted a big family and hence three children from different parts of the world were adopted - Ana from Siberia, Alex from South Korea and Emma from China.According to them,they are 'Brad and Angelina of Little People'
The Johnstons are bringing up their children without the help of any loans or government's assisstance.They believe in self relying .
Trent said: 'We live within our means. We try to do everything ourselves.'

Trents belonged to the family of dwarfs while Amber came from a full family.She got pregnant five months later of her marriage and expected their baby to be a normal one but at 31 weeks, she discovered their unborn baby is going to be a dwarf too.
Achondroplasia is a form of short-limbed dwarfism. The word achondroplasia literally means 'without cartilage formation'. However, the problem is not in forming cartilage but in converting it to bone, particularly in the long bones of the arms and legs.
