She noticed how those dolls could help a child get through tough times and find a way to connect and nurture themselves when the dolls looked like the children. Amy shares many stories about how her dolls came to be, one touching story was the true catalyst to creating A Doll Like Me, when a  friend of a friend saw a doll that looked like her daughter, but the friend's daughter's leg had just been amputated and she asked Amy if she could make a doll that looked like her daughter with the amputated leg. That led to the doll being posted on social media and within 2 months she had over 200 orders and the rest, as they say, is Doll Herstory.Every doll makes a difference;  and, every doll is created and hand sewn with love.  To find out how you can support and sponsor a doll for a child, please visit Amy and A Doll Like Me at her Facebook page at Follow and like In The Doll World, doll podcast and doll YouTube channel, on social media.
