Working mom Amy Roloff is in charge of the household. She manages the homework, social lives and extracurricular activities of four children, while also holding down two jobs: one part time for a local soccer club and the other as a preschool teacher. Amy's no-nonsense approach to life helps her handle a busy schedule and a family of four, along with a husband who's a constant dreamer.
Amy's dwarfism is the result of the most frequently diagnosed cause of short stature, achondroplasia (one per 26,000 to 40,000 births), a genetic condition that results in disproportionately short arms and legs.
Amy is also an active member of Little People of America, and worked with Matt to help manage the LPA 50th anniversary national conference in Seattle, Wash., in 2007.
Amy's parents are both average height and she has no little person siblings. She does, however, have two average-height sisters and an average-height brother.
