this is when i LOVE making dolls

last week i made a really special doll for a very special wee boy, Jacob, born at just 24 weeks gestation.


i was told he was 32cm long, so made a doll the exact same length.
and as Jacob grows, i hope it will always be a reminder of how far he has come.


{special thanks to Jakey's mama, Jess, who took this picture and generously allowed me to publish it here}

  2. Dee, my heart goes out to this little fella and his family. Your gift is so sweet and thoughtful (and so good for a boy!). As requested, I will be bringing this little man and his family before the throne of Grace tonight. May God strengthen Him and may Jacob grow to realise his potential and purpose. Blessings, Fi xx

  4. Bless the little man. I can well imagine it must've been very special for you to make a doll for little Jacob, and to his length at birth is a wonderful idea!
    Will be praying for this little life, that he continues to grow strong day by day. Thanks for sharing this xx

  5. What a beautiful thing to do, Dee.
    I hope that he keeps gaining weight and growing good and strong and that he'll be carrying around his wee doll in, what feels like, no time at all xx

  6. Oh that breaks my heart. So a beautiful thought to him the same length. I will send all my prayers to little Jacob. A friend had her baby this time last year at the same gestation and she is such a wee treasure and perfectly healthy and happy now xxx

  11. I know it's been said, but the length idea is genius and wonderful and lovely. Esky and I have been praying by her bedside for this li'l lad and his family - I think so often of them!

  12. That is just precious and such a great way of seeing how very small he was from the beginning. I know he and his family will cherish that doll forever. Will be praying for Jacob and his family as they go through this difficult, character building time.
