In some ways, The Johnstons are an average American family of seven, pursuing the American dream: They live and work in rural Georgia, and are transforming a fixer-upper into their dream home all by themselves. However, this is no ordinary family -- they are the largest known family of little people in the world. All seven Johnstons have Achondroplasia Dwarfism, a genetic condition that affects their size. Dad, Trent, and mom, Amber, have a total of five kids under the age of 16: Jonah and Elizabeth, their biological kids, as well as three adopted children, Anna from Russia, Alex from South Korea, and Emma from China. Juggling the demands of a family of seven while living in your dream home that is being renovated because it's a fixer-upper is anything but easy, but the Johnstons are up for the challenge.
