From CNN.com

 Balawing was born a normal size, his family said, and they did not notice anything unusual about him until he was about 4 years old and his peers grew more than he did.
He has not grown since his first birthday, his parents told Guinness.
They are too poor to investigate what medical condition prevented him from growing taller, Guinness said.
But they call him "their lucky charm," saying his father Reynaldo, a blacksmith, had been unemployed until he was born, then found a job after his birth.
"He needs my care every minute of every day. Junrey can only walk with some help and he can't stand for too long because he's in too much pain," his mother, Concepcion, said.
He does not have a girlfriend, he told Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday: "You fool!" he chides in his squeaky high-pitched voice, "Don't even ask!"

Municipal administrator Allan Selda says the local government is preparing to celebrate the expected Guinness announcement with balloons and a cake for Balawing.
Wait a minute, this guy gets balloons AND a cake? Is this how they squander US foreign aid funded by MY TAX DOLLARS?  That money was meant to buy shoes and loincloths, not  throwing extravagant parties for midgets! These type of government handouts will only encourage this Balawing to continue to whine about getting the short end of the stick for the rest of his life. Grow up, Balawing!

Filipino Expected to Be Named World's Shortest Man
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
SINDANGAN, Philippines (AP) Officials say a Filipino about two feet tall is expected to be named the world's shortest man when he turns 18 on Sunday.

Lolit Homay, municipal health officer in Zamboanga del Norte province's Sindangan township, says Junrey Balawing was measured at about 24 inches (61 centimeters) from head to foot lying down and slightly above 23 inches (58 centimeters) standing up Saturday.

A representative of Guinness World Records is to announce the official measurements on Sunday.

Current record holder Khagendra Thapa Magar of Nepal is 26.4 inches tall.

Municipal administrator Allan Selda says the local government is preparing to celebrate the expected Guinness announcement with balloons and a cake for Balawing.
