Adobe Acrobat not expanding text to fit correctly in static form:

My form is no longer working as intended after creating it successfully as a dynamic form and then converted it to a 'static' PDF to be rendered on a site.  The fields are mapped correctly, but now they do not expand to fit the text content.  Could someone please take a look at my form and let me know if this is possible.  Because of the current type of response it isn't possible for us to guess ahead of time how large of the areas will be.  Essentially we need to have a text box that increases height, or can even span a page if necessary.  Can this be accomplished, and can anyone provide an example using the form linked here?  

If this will not work, do any of the form gurus here have a recommendation on how to best handle this?
 
Thank you so much,

You've encountered the difference between static and dynamic forms. Only a dynamic form can dynamically adjust form fields.
