She has a dog, Teddy, and a puppy, Toby, who are half-siblings because they have the same dad. Lexi loves dogs and she loves to bake. She has her own business which is making treats for dogs. Sometimes she spends the money she gets from selling the dog treats and sometimes she saves it. Her family also helps her in making the treats and selling them. They have fun together and they all love music. Every family is different and Lexi is proud of her family. She has two moms and she loves both of them. Her older brother Logan is strong and healthy and he likes to work out. Lexi's favorite story is the one about how she was created. Lexi is happy with her life and the way things are. Her life is filled with love and she doesn't want to change anything. The book tackles the concept of donor children from a child's perspective and teaches children to love each other irrespective of what their families are.

  1. Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR agaba helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is Dragabasolutionhome@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on : Dragabasolutionhome@gmail.com or WhatApp: +2349074536486
