Amazing Amputee Grandmother Makes Personalized Dolls for Amputee Children

This 56 year old has a big heart and swift hands, and she's using them to spread joy to kids across the UK.

By The Editors

Andrea Harrison, 56, lost her right leg to Type 1 diabetes years ago and had long since adjusted to life without it. Harrison was scrolling through the Amputee Friends UK Facebook group when she came across a post about 8-year-old Ffion, who was having trouble with activities in school because of her amputated leg. Harrison knew she wanted to help.

Harrison crotcheted a special doll with an amputated leg for Ffion.

“Even though I had never met the little girl, this really pulled on my heart-strings,” Harrison told North News. “I wanted to make her a doll that would be just like her.”

After Harrison sent Ffion the doll (with an okay from her mom), their posts received a lot of attention in the Facebook group and doll orders for other children started pouring in.

“I started doing them for children with a range of amputations -- or dolls of parents with amputations to help them understand more about their mummies or daddies,” Harrison said.

Harrison, a former teaching assistant who helped children with different abilities, is touched by the reaction from the children receiving her dolls.

“It’s something they can relate to. I just love how happy my dolls make people.”

My husband is my hero, he saved our marriage and my heart from an unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
The problem was that I jumped into marriage from a fresh breakup, I never allowed my heart to heal, that’s why I was heavily hunted and distracted to a point that I almost abandoned my husband and our 2 beautiful daughters to my ex. Look how stupid I was to think that my beloved husband of 5 years can be replaced by a bad ass ex-boyfriend.
My husband proved that real men still exist despite all the embarrassment I brought to him, he didn’t let go, he rather worked with Dr. Wakina through his love spell to untie me from the unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
Now my eyes are open to cherish the beautiful family I have, I also realised the meaning of true love. I’m hoping to do more than what Dr. Wakina via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com did for me.
Thanks to my husband for letting me share this story.
Remain blessed.

How i get my divorce husband back again with the good help of Dr. Trust powerful love spell...
My name is Alicia Jane. When i read a testimony online on how Dr.Trust the great and most powerful spell caster help to bring back Divorce husband or wife EX LOVER. I was wondering how can this be true, Because many has failed me in the past without any result from them. I just let the post pass by and move on the forum. To my notice under again, Some person posted and said tested and trusted spell caster. After reading through the mail it was this same man Dr.Trust she was talking about. So i have no other option than to really check up how he works.I was totally devastated when my beloved husband left me. It was like my entire world vanishing into sorrow and pain. I know it sounds weird but out of all the spell casters I contacted, he was the only one to give me that impression of being so true and trustful. More than his words,He brought my husband back and he made all my wishes come true. He is now loyal, pays attention to me, he offers me flowers every Sunday, and we often go out at the cinema and the restaurant. my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. I will be forever thankful for turning my life from hell to heaven! i believe who need help should get to him for help. May God continue to use you to save broken relationship.
