She has caused quite a sensation, from California to Hawaii, from Sonora, Mexico to Ontario, Canada, north to Oregon and many points between. She is very blessed with friends and family, extended and doting, generous and kind. Great-Grandma Marjorie sent Maria this hand-knit doll, and the intensity of Maria's affection for her baby is precious. She lights up when seeing her doll, she hugs her, she kisses her, she gazes adoringly in to her black, stitched eyes. Love. It's grand.
