It’s up! The tomb is empty! Rejoice!
This is what Tori Roloff wrote as a caption on Instagram as the mother of three celebrated Easter with her immediate family.
However, instead of focusing on the resurrection of Jesus Christ, many of the reality star’s followers focused on something more practical when they saw the following image.

Yes, Jackson Roloff’s legs.
Jackson, 5, was all smiles in the photo, wearing a gray long-sleeve shirt with a pair of jeans … but look at the way he’s standing.
He looked more dapper than ever.
This is the result of infantile dwarfism, and it is nothing new. But although it seems to be more prominent than it was later Previous surgery.
“Jackson’s legs really need attention! As he gets older, the damage gets worse,” one social media user responded to the post.

“But we trust his doctors and our Lord that this is the best decision for him.”
Like his father and paternal grandparents, Jackson was born with Achondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism.
Babies born with achondroplasia have short arms and legs, large heads, and medium-sized trunks.
They are shorter than other people due to bone abnormalities.
