Ten years ago, Catherine had a display at the National Perinatal Bereavement Conference in Las Vegas. “Parents were able to hold the dolls and heal,” she said. “There was a nurse there who used to help doctors perform abortions. Seeing my display changed her heart.” Catherine sees the importance of putting clothes on her dolls. “It makes them human and proves that they represent real babies,” she said. “You can’t put clothes on a mass of cells, but you can on a baby.” Catherine’s attention to detail in her portrait models is heartbreakingly beautiful. The concept of kangaroo care was developed in the 1970s by two Colombian pediatricians seeking a solution to shortages of incubators and hospital staff. The low-cost, low-tech technique turned out to be surprisingly effective at boosting the survival rate of babies born before the 37th week of pregnancy. For more information on Catherine's doll ministry, see GodsLittleOnes.com and MiracleBabyDolls.com. God works all things for the good But not everyone likes what Catherine is doing. Jane Magazine ran a spoof ad using photos from Catherine’s website. “That’s okay because God used it for good,” she said. “A woman who’d had an abortion saw the ad and contacted me, requesting that I make her a memorial doll to help her grieve her loss.” Over the last 23 years, Catherine has made more than 5,000 dolls at various gestational ages. They have been used as dolls to help parents heal from miscarriage and abortion, as models to educate in prenatal and pro-life settings, and they even saved a life. Catherine’s greatest desire is to get her models into the public schools. “I created them to teach my own daughters what their baby brothers looked like in the womb, and now, I want all children to see the miracle of life,” she said.
