a doll just like me...
Thanks to my Aunt Cheryl & Uncle Michael, I'm now the VEEEERRRRY proud owner of Avery, a doll "with alopecia."
Look at my surprise as I opened up the box & showed Mommy what it was! "Mommy, it's a doll like me!" I exclaimed.
I couldn't stop staring at her. She's soooo beautiful.
(who'll ever know if this moment was more special for me or Mommy? *tears*)
I can't let this little doll go now! She even sleeps next to me each night.
From Mommy: We are SO grateful for all of the people who campaigned for these dolls to come into existence! It's so encouraging to see the Facebook pictures of LOTS of girls with hairloss thrilled to receive their dolls. And I know a bald doll may not seem like that big of a deal to you...
but it's a pretty big deal to her.
