For a long time, Shauna Rae Lesick, a 23-year-old lady stuck in the body of an eight-year-old, was worried about what would become of her love life due to her stature. But now, reports reveal she has finally found a great love interest and has introduced him to her parents. Find out more.

Details Of Shauna's Condition

As a child, Shauna suffered brain cancer, and the effects of the treatment left her with stunted growth. At 23, she is only three feet, ten inches tall, and weighs about 50 pounds - the height, and size of an eight-year-old.

Although Shauna is often mistaken as a child, her stunted growth is not the only thing that bothers her and her parents. Over the years, she revealed her parents were concerned about her love life because they believed she would attract only creeps due to her miniature size.
