Lee was an Achondroplasia Dwarf. He was the only person living with dwarfism in his family. He talked about living with dwarfism on the Living Outside the Circle website: “I’m the only person living with dwarfism in my family, where I always had loving, supportive parents and spouse throughout my childhood and adult life. With that support and backbone, I was constantly involved in a lot of activities as a child (sports, theater, and hobbies) and therefore with these experiences, I found myself not afraid to start relationships, projects, and self-employment. Even early on in life, my mother would tell the story of how I would see people stare at me, and my first reaction was to walk up to them to introduce myself with a hug. I guess at the time I didn’t realize that I was physically different or maybe awkward-looking toward individuals in society.
“In life as a young child, I had to learn early on how to deal with being physically different from everyone else I was around. Of course, the teasing and name-calling were part of my life early in grade school as I ventured into the world away from the protective circle of the family. Also, the bullying was part of my life every time I moved to a different school or classroom; I had to learn to overcome daily ridicule and let my classmates know that I was just like them, only shorter. Once kids got over the physical dissimilarity, the concern wasn’t such a big deal and we went ahead with our friendships.”
