Reborn Baby Dolls and the Women Who Love Them

Sounds like a Jerry Springer episode, doesn't it? But it's actually from Good Morning America. These "reborn" dolls are remade to look remarkably real - so lifelike, in fact, that some women carry them around in public and accept compliments on their "babies." They also change their diapers multiple times a day and even throw them birthday parties, complete with real guests. GMA did a piece on these women and why they do what they do... it's very strange and sad, I think.

I am an Angel Mom My son died from SIDS in 2008, from the first time I saw a reborn after my son died I have wanted one that looked like him no I dont want it because I think it will replace my son or bring my son back but it would be nice to hold the reborn and pretend for a minute that I am holding my son or maybe take a few pictures of me holding the reborn because I was always taking the pictures I wasn't in them.

To answer the first post of this thread, there áre black reborn dolls! Or we call them 'ethnic reborns'. You can find them for example here:

I just love these art dolls, they are now also making ethnic reborns, so that's good I think ;-). They are terribly expensive though... :( But then again, it IS art!
