I love my Leanna. She's a teenager. She's kind of short, but taller than me. She is friendly, talented, intelligent. She will go out of her way to help others. She's also sensitive, artistic, musical,kind, shy, reserved, self conscience, loves reading and writing. She loves sweets, but I mean who doesn't? She loves playing in drama's at church, and at school. The best thing I love about my daughter is that she's understanding and is such a very sweet girl. She brightens my day, because she's full of fun and a good companion, that is if you're close to her. Any boy who has her will be lucky.
