Here's a note from Layla:
I’m in search of my support human. I’m a single mom of a special needs daughter Olivia. We were very neglected and have been brought back to life. We would like to live life to the fullest with someone who is very affectionate. We are super huggers, we like to snuggle every chance we get, and I personally like to to keep your head warm, while Olivia likes to keep your toes warm. Please consider keeping me and my daughter together, but I understand if we need to separate.
