‘I Am Shauna Rae’: Shauna Rae and Friend Thomas Go Out with Their Parents

I Am Shauna Rae spoilers, news, and updates tease that Shauna Rae went out on a date with Thomas again, but this time, with their parents.

Shauna Rae is a 22-year-old “trapped in the body of an 8-year-old,” as she would describe herself. She became popular when TLC started to document her life as she deals with her health condition. Her medical issue started when her mom noticed a bump on the back of her head when she was still 6 months old.

The bump happened to be brain cancer, and at such a young age, Shauna deals with the toughness of the chemotherapy. As a result, her growth stopped at 3 feet and 10 inches tall. Since then, she was diagnosed with pituitary dwarfism and it has been difficult for the TLC star to deal with life because of the judgments she often gets from people.

Shauna Rae Dates a Man with Pituitary Dwarfism

In the previous episode of the TLC show, Shauna Rae showed excitement over her new date who has the same medical condition as hers. When the two finally met face to face, they toured the firehouse as Thomas is a volunteer firefighter. They also ate at a diner and discussed a lot of experiences.

The TLC star also mentioned that some kids were eyeing her due to her height. Despite their differences, Shauna told PEOPLE that she truly had a great time spending time with Thomas. “Meeting the young man with pituitary dwarfism was an amazing experience. We had a lot in common because of our medical histories. Then our actual social lives are much different,” she stated.

Shauna Rae Meets Thomas’ Parents

Following their first meeting, Shauna and Thomas decided to remain friends. However, they were determined to get to know each other so they went out on a date again alongside their respective parents. On the other hand, Thomas still hopes that their friendship would turn into “something.”

Thomas’ mom, Kerri, was also excited to meet Shauna’s mom, Patty, as they surely have a lot in common, given that they both have a child who faces the same medical condition. Patty commended Kerri as she was determined to let Thomas explore the things he wanted to do.

She also felt guilty for keeping Shauna from doing the things she wanted to try. “I didn’t discourage her, but any fears that she gave, I said, ‘I’m OK with that,’ versus ‘Let’s just try it,’ and that didn’t necessarily empower her,” Patty stated.
