Marlene Moore – Alyisa’s mentor
“Alyisa is one of the most beautiful little girls I’ve ever met. I know she is going to be ‘super special’ and very successful in her life. I came into her life at just the right time. She was healing from some hard things and becoming a bright young woman.
“We have enjoyed doing crafts together. She comes over to my house and swims. She likes my little dogs.
“I never worry about Alyisa. I know that she’s going to make it. It has been fun getting to see her blossom in front of my eyes. She really keeps me on my toes. She and her brother are two of the sweetest kids in the whole world.”
