Luci
     

Poor Luci!

She's not feeling so good after her treatment this week.  

But her Moms are right on hand to make her smile again -- as she always does.

     

 
 

Peggy and Alison are her "Moms".  

They are two women who, after raising their own families, decided to adopt children who were born addicted, HIV+ and subsequently abandoned by their birth mothers.

     
They've adopted eight in all (well, four have different physical challenges than their original intent) and Luci is now 14.  This is remarkable for a little girl whose prognosis was a couple of years at best.  These Moms are never in the picture; they are too busy taking care of Luci and her siblings!
