Welcome to my website.  Since the sudden death of my son Chance on Nov. 30th, 2011, I have decided to dedicate this site in memory of Chance and donate 100% of proceeds from my doll sales and auctions,  to  an orphanage for girls,(Click on the following link for information)  Santo Domingo in Guatelmala, Chance's uncle Greg's blog and information about the orphange, which he visits and supports multiple times per year.

My first $600 I donated to the orphanage for a TV, that Greg went and purchased, really made me
very happy, and he forwarded me a thank you email from them....I copied and pasted it below the photos.
The first photo is the new TV.  
Thank you Greg for letting me use your photos!

Below is the girls enjoying the new TV!

Below is the old TV they had. (Greg is sitting to the left)

Below is the thank you email

My second donation of $1,000 (March 2013) went to buy food for the orphanage, which Greg shopped for when he visited recently.

I am also makeing some dolls with painted hair to  donate to Alzheimer's patient's as it has been shown to be good therapy.
