Then he mentioned Baby J has dwarfism too, and he hoped when he gets older that he too, will have the opportunity to play if he wishes to. On the competition, Zach Roloff seems thrilled that once again, there’s a window to “educate people about those with differences.” Fans of Little People, Big World, know that’s always been the aim of the reality TV show.
