Alexis was featured on Wednesday’s Child in 2006. Lanier and Adam, already parenting several children, decided to become a foster family to a child in need. As most children living in foster care, Alexis came to them dealing with behavioral issues and struggling in school due to instability and other challenges.
Lanier and Adam worked hard to show her love and accept her as their own. With much dedication, support, and perseverance, they have proven to Alexis that they are worthy of her love. Lanier empathically told Alexis “this is your last stop”. Since then, Alexis has dramatically improved in all areas, including school.
What is Alexis up to now? Her adoption just finalized, she graduated as validictorian for her graduating class, and she is involved in cheerleading. This amazing young lady has hurtled through obstacles, challenges, and unfortunate events in her life. Thanks to her strength, endurance, resilience, and loving new parents, she has a new life and a hopeful future.
