Stranger Gives Horse To Girl With Disabilities
One mother wanted to give a painting of a horse to her daughter. When she reached out to Facebook for support, what they got in return was more than she could have ever imagined. Alexus (Lex) Lasiter has cerebal palsy, a seizure disorder, heart trouble and kidney problems. Her mother, Wathena Sievert, wanted to cheer the 7-year-old up after many recent trips to the hospital. Wathena reached out to Facebook in hopes for a painting to be sent via mail to Lex. Travis Barker, of Florida, made a page called 'Horses For Lex'. An outpouring of support followed, and thousands of paintings were sent. Becky Anne Ross contacted Barker with an offer to give Lex a rescue horse named Snickerdoodle. The gentle giant has experience working with kids with disabilities. "Their relationship is going to help strengthen her physically, and what parent wouldn’t hope for that?" Ross told Today.com. "I just think it’s going to be awesome all the way around." The family traveled to Florida and surprised Lex with her new friend. The look on her face was more rewarding than you can imagine.
