Caleb’s doll

 

These dolls are NOT toys.

 

 

 

 

2 Corinthians 1:3-7

3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 5For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows. 6If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer.  7And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.”

 

(from the Holy Bible—New International Version (NIV))

Welcome to my custom hand-made

preemie doll site!

 

My name is Kim

& I am a preemie mom.

 

 

I have a heart for families who have had preemies & for those families who have felt the pain of losing a baby, since we have been through both.

 

 

Our oldest son Caleb was born at 28 weeks gestation

& he is a healthy, normal, active boy.

 

Our daughter Alexia was born at 36 weeks gestation.

She had complications of amniotic band syndrome

& lived for 1 hour & 16 minutes without breathing.

 

Our youngest son Eli was born at 38/39 weeks gestation (full-term)

& he is a healthy, normal, active boy.

 

You can read more about our children’s birth stories on our about us page.

 

 

When we would tell someone that our son was born at 28 weeks, that he was 2 lbs.  6.1 oz. & 13 1/2” long they couldn’t fathom how small he was & really understand all he has gone through. That was until my mother-in-law bought a birth size doll from Sandy Eding (the lady who designed the preemie doll & doll clothing patterns). As I showed people what he looked like at birth, they realized that he has come a very long way.

 

Occasionally I also forget how big our daughter was, until I made a ‘specialty doll’ of her. It shows all of her malformations without being offensive (or scary) to others, (you can see more photos of her doll on

the doll photos page).

 

These dolls can not replace a child, but they can bring comfort & remembrance of the child.
