Do you remember when I got Hitty? It was January of this year and it was right before I hit bottom, so to speak, emotionally and took some time away from the blog and started getting help for my depression. I'm really attached to this sweet little doll. You know, she is only 6" tall and she has her own little drawstring bag so she can travel with me anywhere. For a while there she was my comfort doll. I loved to hold her tight and trace her outlines with my fingers. I needed comfort and she was very good at giving it.
Can you remember that comfort that came from a doll? It may have been years since you have experienced it, but it is very real.
Pat Winter, a visionary, has had this wonderful idea to put Comfort Dolls into the hands of women who desperately need comfort- women escaping domestic violence. I do hope you will visit her blog and learn more about this wonderful mission. I can't wait to get to started!
