Thanks so much everyone  Smiley
I've just got such a soft spot in my heart for children, especially those who are needy or without parents. I've got 3 brothers, 2 of those being adopted, and our family is in the process of trying to adopt 2 more.. so my family definitely tries to reach out to help children. We're so fortunate compared to so many- I'm truely blessed.

I'm really interested in seeing if anybody else starts to make some of these fun little dresses. If anybody wants to send me dresses to send by my dad to the Liberian orphange, I'm located in South Carolina and will happily accept dresses.


just some more pics..










leighi123, I will happily accept them and you can be assured that they will be going to an african orphange, and I can very likely provide you with pictures of your dresses with the children.  Smiley just shoot me a pm & I'll give you my mailing info. Thank you sooo much!

At 15 you've done more to help the world than so many adults!  I'm proud of you and those dresses are adorable!

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

You could make some and send them to me so I can send them to my dad in Africa and he can distribute them himself at the orphange in Liberia.

if you would p/m with your address i would DEF send send you some for your dad to hand out.im not so great with making dresses.but i make shorts pretty well.i also make teddy bears that i give out to children at shelters around here..so i could probably send some of those too(if you guys think that the children would like them Cheesy)

You truely are an inspiration! I'm 15 too and you have done a lot more to help others than I ever have. I know exactly what you mean about stupid teenagers making comments about something you do. Since when did it become wrong to do something right?  Huh

Well done on making a difference! We need more people our age to do things like this  Embarrassed
