    these kids are hanging out in our spare room.....

    these 8 dolls are hanging around in our spare room waiting for a child to love them. They are for children with devastating illness, like cancer, physical/mental abuse, transplants, etc. Normally for kids 2 to 8 years of age, but exceptions are made dependent on circumstances. Dolls are free. Most go locally to the American cancer society in our country and adjoining one as they distribute them for me free to a little one with cancer. If other children with cancer, etc from other states are in need, hubby and I do all we can to see a doll goes their way. Each girl takes 12 hours to finish, the boys not so long a time since they wear street clothes. The girls are 23/24 inches high and boys are 28 inches high. If you know of a child that is VERY sick and in need of such a doll, please contact me via a PM message with details, or ask for my e-mail, and I will send it via PM

    Thanks so much for the great replies. I'm glad you liked seeing them. I am so glad I know how to make them.

    Hope every doll comforts that special child in need.

    Very nice dolls and I'm sure a sick child would love having one. Good of you to make and give.

    Very cute! At least, they won't eat you out of house and home.

    They are all so cute. That is so sweet of you to give them to needy and sick children. Where did you get the pattern?
