Looking for a place to call home

As the sun slowly drifted off to bed the girls looked longing out of their dorm window…

Not today….

Grace, Emmie and Georgia were waiting for a new family, for some reason or another they had found themselves without somewhere to call home.

But they had found each other, and they loved each other fiercely. they had become their own family.

Grace was highly organised, and some might say a little bossy! but the two others needed a friendly push to get themselves out the door in the mornings.

Georgia, dear, dear Georgia, the worrier. She thinks they will never find families, or worse still, the other girls will, and leave her behind!.

As much as she would love a family of her own, she loves her sisters and they have such fun!, every night is like a sleepover with her best friends.

Emmie loves the outdoors especially the forest, she would spend every single day there if she could. Climbing trees, Paddling in the stream….

It was her idea to sneak out one night many months ago, the girls couldn’t sleep and decided they would go to the fort and tell each other stories.

Their fort was just above the stream which ran down the back of the property, this was by far their favourite spot.

The girls would spend hours talking about their dream Families.

 

Grace wanted to be an only child and to be spoilt rotten! She dreamed her mum was funny, intelligent and above all strong!.. she was not sure if she wanted a dad, he would have to be very kind and read her books lots and lots!

Emmie, well she wanted a family that lived in a caravan, always on the move . She wanted to see so much of the world. She thinks it would be fun to have three sisters and four brothers, and that they would all squeeze into the one big bed at night, where their Mum and Dad would tell them wild stories of their great adventures before they had soooooo many children.

Georgia, well she changes her mind often, which to be honest is not unlike her. Some days she wanted a big family, some days small. Then she Quite liked the idea of two mummies, but then decided that two daddies would be so much fun too!. Today she decided that any type of family that loved her and made her feel safe would be the perfect one for her.

Adoption day was growing ever closer.

The girls were beside themselves with worry, excitement, you name it they felt it!

 

Although they deeply wanted to start their new lives, they loved each other so much, the thought of not living together was so sad. It was of course quite possible that one family might be able to take two or more of them, grace was not too sure she would like to share though!.Either way they knew each other, where ever they ended up would come and visit.

the girls scrambled to the window peering out as the cars rolled into the gravel drive way…here they were!

If you would like to adopt one of the girls please send me a message at mapetitevie@icloud.com or message me via my Facebook page.

I will leave offers open for 24 hours, if at that point I have more than one offer I will pluck a name from a hat.

You are welcome to offer homes to more than one girl, however if your name is picked more than once you must be prepared to take each doll. (its crazy but it happens!)

I will let each new family know asap. Thank you so much for considering these girls for your family, you will not regret it!
