I wanted to post the pictures that I have of Lexi. I don't have very many. We got her late at night and then we had to get up early the next morning to go to the Civil Affairs Office. I wish I would've known what was going to happen, I would've taken many more pictures. I didn't even get a picture of her with her daddy. He was the only one that got her to laugh and smile and she loved the way he held her. You can see on the pictures of when we first got her, she would hook her finger around her front tooth for comfort. It is hard to look at these pictures. I realize how much I really do love her. Thanks so much to my CHI family who are working hard to get her the care that she needs. I don't know how much longer she will have to live, but I am so thankful for caring people that want to make sure she has the best life possible.

Dear Amy,
The same thing(problem with referral) happened to us in 06'. It will work out. Have faith. There are plenty of little girls that need a mother. Your reason is legit. Smart to have her checked out. Some do not.
Praying for you & Little Lexi. I hope that they do care for her and get her the help she deserves.

Amy, I am so happy to see your beautiful Lexi. What precious pictures you have of her! I'm so sorry that she is not well and that you are both left heartbroken. I know it must have been horrible to have to let her go. Praying for comfort for you all. Laurie
