Our inspiration for Molly's Babies was my own beautiful granddaughter Molly, who passed away at 6 weeks old and will never get a chance to care for own baby doll. We wanted to honor her short but beautiful life by doing something meaningful for little girls in her name.
So Molly’s Babies was born. Molly's Babies are special baby dolls -- some new, some gently used -- all lovingly cleaned and redressed by our volunteers to be given to little girls -- little Mommies -- all over the country who don't have a baby doll to hold and care for.
Molly's Babies, a 501(c)(3) Connecticut-based non-profit was formed for the express purpose of seeing that families in need...financially or sometimes emotionally...can get a baby doll for their little girls who might otherwise not have one to cuddle and love.
Nothing is as important to a little girl as having a doll to hold, dress, and care for. Little "Mommies" learn so many subtle lessons from cuddling and caring for their dolls that not having a baby doll can be a developmental opportunity missed.
