Getting adopted....

My sister Janet found these two baby dolls from days of yesterday at a flea market or auction. I'm sending them over to my other sister Shirley to live at her house cause I already have adopted several abandoned babies and she doesn't have any at her house. Don't they just need someone to love them? In today's world dolls are plentiful and cheap and most little girls have several. But I bet back in these dolls day, some little girl only had one doll and it lasted her a lifetime. I think that is why these dolls are still around today. They were so precious that the little girl would grow up and her baby would go with her to be handed down to her own little girls to play with. They were treasures forever!!

Yeah! I am so glad these girls are gonna get some love! I do have a little girl & I do only like her to have a few so she can love them up properly! She just got Rebbeca from the American girl dolls for Christmas & it is true love!

How true. I found a very old doll for a quarter several years ago at a yard sale. I gave it to my mom because she loves dolls. She cried her eyes out BECAUSE it was the same type of doll she had when she was a kid (she was probably 78 at the time ~ 3 years ago). I felt all kinds of awesome about that and still do today. Sadly, the poor little thing is packed away since she is in a nursing facility. Maybe I should pull it out and try to fix it up for her.
