Peter Dinklage, who has dwarfism, is a break-out star on the HBO series, "Game of Thrones."

Christy Jordan said she isn't even critical of the entertainment shows that highlight dwarfs in comedic roles [Danny Woodburn of "Seinfeld" and Verne Troyer of the "Austin Powers," for example] -- "as long as it is done tastefully and they are not exploited."

"I think society in general for anyone with special needs has changed in a good direction," she said. "They are just like average people trying to live life."

All the Jordans want to accomplish is to "get the word out" and educate people about dwarfism.

As for the series, "Big Tiny," Brad Jordan said he hope it "inspires people."

Bri Jordan immediately chimed in, "Yeah, yeah."

He hopes to go on and work in sports or the theater arts. She wants to he a fashion designer and create clothing for little people.

As for their mother, Christy Jordan said it is her youngest children who inspire her.

"When I look back and see how they live life, if I could do half of that, I would be doing great," she said.

To learn more go to the Potential Foundation, which supports the work of families dealing with dwarfism.
