Little tiny,
baby girl.

A little tiny
drug baby.

Her mother was
on 3 different drugs,

when she was
pregnant with Alexa.

It takes 6 months
for the drugs to

exit out of
her system.

No baby should
start life having

to go through
something like that!

She is in pain
every single day,

you can see it
on her face,

she almost always has
a frown on her face.

I want to help her,
make the pain go away,

but there is nothing
really, that I can do.

All I can do is love her,
and care for her.

Alexa is a cutie,
and I feel so much love

inside my heart,
and all I want to do

is hold her against me,
and hug her forever!

Isn't new life such a miracle?

And the abuse of it, such an injustice. I respect your family for their choice to foster a child... wow. How is she doing today? What's her personality like?
