Host a Child from Mexico!
10/20/2016 UPDATE! We are thrilled to report Lexi has a family!!! Thank you to all who advocated for this brave little girl!
We need to find a family for Lexi! If now is not the right time for you please consider sharing her story. It may be the perfect time for someone you know!
Beautiful Lexi (RK# 32080) will soon turn five. Because her skin is easily affected by friction and even small bumps resulting in painful blisters and sores she requires extra care and attention. She has an experienced nanny who will carefully hold her and give her the warmth and affection she so deeply needs but Lexi needs more. She needs a family who will shower her with the love every five year old deserves.
As with others who have her condition, Lexi seems to fare better in the winter months or in colder climates.
According to her most recent update from July 2015 Lexi is cognitively spot on with peers her same age. She is well behaved, obeys rules, knows how to share and is very expressive. Her emotional development is said to be normal, however due to her special need she cannot have very close physical contact with other kids so she has become more introverted and likes quiet. She especially likes the task of feeding little kids.
