Caption: Dwarves Bobby Dohr, 18, and Sam Boggs, 16, cuddle on a sofa inside the Hyatt hotel in Burlingame, CA, on July 7, 2004. More than 1800 dwarves gathered at the annual convention of the Little People of America (LPA) in Burlingame, CA, for a week of workshops, seminars, sports, parties and sightseeing. The gathering was also an opportunity to forge friendships, meet potential spouses and escape the stares and whispers of the "average-size" world. Little People of America (LPA) is a nonprofit organization that provides support and information to people of short stature and their families. Dwarfism is usually defined as a medical or genetic condition that results in an adult height of 4'10" (125 cms) or shorter.
