Default 6 year old local child in need of kidney transplant

A doll had been given to this child who lives in my town. There have been those clear donation cannisters around town trying to raise money to help parents with expenses that will be occurred now with his 'treatements' and when/if a transplanted kidney becomes available. cajunquilt2 is making him a quilt and I made the boy doll he is holding. His grandma says he sleeps with it every night and loves it. He has named the doll Ted. I thought I'd share this with you, and hope you enjoy seeing Trent and Ted.

Vickey Stamps.

P.S. This makes a total of 117 dolls that have found a home and a child to love them. Hugs to you and yours.

Vickey, how kind of you to make dolls for these kids. I'm sure they find great comfort in having them. God bless you and Trent.

How adorable! His grin definitely says he loves his doll you made. I will definitely keep this little one in my prayers. I have PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease) so his illness hits close to home with me. God bless you for blessing others with your gifts. We can never do to much to help others in situations like this.

Default re: Picture and upcoming quilt

Will do. I gave her an envelope with your home address on it so a thank you could come your way, when Trent gets his quilt. She thought he'd love having Hockey paraphenalia on the fabric...just for him.

Big hugs. Glad you got to see the picture.

I only do what I am able. I like being able to design and freely use that simplistic design to life some unwelcome discomfort from a childs life and that of its family. God bless you and thank you for those prayers for Trent and his family. I sure like your avitar. Did you make a quilt using that block or is it a whole quilt?
