All seven Johnstons have Achondroplasia Dwarfism, a genetic condition that affects their size. Parents Trent and Amber have a total of five kids under the age of 16 - Jonah and Elizabeth as well as three adopted children, Anna from Russia, Alex from South Korea, and Emma from China.

In upcoming episodes, the family throws a huge birthday party for Jonah and Liz. And Amber tries to expand her real estate business, which leads to competition between Alex and Anna. Juggling the everyday demands of any family of seven is anything but easy, but the Johnstons are up for any challenge.
