How One Young Girl’s Dolls Are Comforting Kids Heading For Surgery

Stitches By Charlotte will warm your heart.

Stitches by Charlotte is a comfort doll company started by a young girl who knows the value of a good doll.

When Charlotte was a child, she underwent several surgeries for her cleft pallet. She knows how hard surgeries can be for children, but she also knows how much having a doll can comfort them. So she started making dolls for other kids who were facing frightening medical prospects. Her company, Stitches By Charlotte, produces custom dolls showing the medical struggles children have that they can use as comfort dolls heading into doctor's appointments or surgeries. 

"My favorite part about making a doll is not the fabrics, not sewing, but giving it to a kid," Charlotte said.
