My story began 11 years ago on January 22, 2001. It was a cold winter night, my big sister was sleeping in my parents bed while holding my mom's hand. When she woke up in the morning, my parents were gone. I was on the way! On the same day my father predicted. Dad thought I was going to be a boy, but Mom thought I was going to be a girl. Before I was born, Mom hoped she was going to have a beautiful brown haired baby with tan skin. She got just that. My mom and dad decided to name me Alexa Nicole Cook. I am so glad that I have such a loving family.
