"Ah hah, our first Hawaiian gal," I thought and promptly started looking up Hawaiian names that meant rainbow or sunshine. Nothing seemed quite right until I stumbled upon a name that meant 'the loved one' and that was that. In hopes that someday she would be just that, well-loved, in the arms of her very own family.

The lucky Anna M's name was drawn and she announced the good news to her 2 daughters that day to let them choose their special doll. It makes me smile to think about her 2 cuties excitedly looking through our available dolls and finally deciding to bring Kealoha home.

I am looking forward to hopefully receiving pix and news about Kealoha's new life in Russia with Grandma Anna and her two new mommies. The thought of that long distance connection sparked an idea - I would love to have families that adopt Tansy Dolls join us here on our blog as guest bloggers to share a sweet story or insight about their doll's new home or fun times they have together.
How fun would it be to have a collection of adventures from around the world? I'm thinkin' pretty darn awesome.
|happy travels, Kealoha!|
Also - I'd like to mention our special Tansy Doll Tuesday event happening tomorrow - we'll be having our very first auction with 100% of proceeds going to help one of our favorite local mom-run businesses: Art a la Carte in Portland.
