It was my wife's idea to get this doll for my brother's first baby. We don't know if it's a boy or a girl yet, so we chose the Avery doll since it would work for either a boy or a girl. It arrived quickly and the quality is excellent. We gave it to them when we went to visit them on Thanksgiving. They loved it, from the doll to the meaning behind where and how it's made. To how it helps feed children all over the world. The irony is they were thinking of naming the baby Avery, maybe this will make them lean towards that name a little bit more. It's the perfect gift that helps give back.
The next generation
Our children and nieces and nephews are starting their own families. Each baby, 5 in total, will be receiving a different cuddle and kind doll for Christmas. They are not only adorable but beautifully made and will serve as a reminder that they are part of a larger world where there are other less fortunate children who are as equally special to their families but who need help from the broader “community”....I tell my children it takes a village to raise a child, we are all part of that village.
Our Sweet Lucy's Little Brother
Our sweet Lucy passed away at age 1 month. I had purchased Lucy the Lamb for her months before she was born. Her mom is now having a rainbow baby, Lincoln, and I was overjoyed to see you had a lamb in rainbow overalls. He will have his big sister's lamb and one of his own - both with such beautiful stories. Thank you for making these special treasures.
