Reborns Are Really Helping Me Cope With the Loss of Lucy

I finally bought my dream baby (reborn). Her name is Elise, and she’s the cutest thing ever. She is a newborn with strawberry blonde hair and is just perfect. She also looks a lot like I did as a baby.

What I’m noticing about the reborns is that they are really helping to comfort me regarding the loss of my cat Lucy. I lost Lucy this past February to large cell lymphoma (cancer). It has been really difficult for me because he and I were really close. And, between he and Patrick, who were both lap cats, I always had someone on my lap.

Since he’s passed, though, I definitely notice when no one is sitting with me. And it’s hard. So, I’m learning that when this happens, and I feel kind of lost/alone without my Luc, I just go and get one of the reborns to hold. It’s actually really comforting to me.

Here’s a picture of my new reborn Elise. Isn’t she cute?
