Lori has several homemade dresses for her monkey, Jessy. Lori, the mother of six children, fell into a deep depression when the last of her children graduated from high school and moved out. She says Jessy helped fill this void for her.

"I was really depressed, and I wanted something that was going to take over for my kids," Lori said. (Courtesy of the Johnson Family)
