Doll faces

That was quite a collection of dolls! They'd have had to be careful that they didn't fall off the bed, though, because at least most of those dolls would break.

I hope the children were comforted by the dolls. They used to keep people hospitalized a lot longer, and usually had strict visiting hours and didn't allow parents to stay there over night. I hope these children recovered and had good lives!

Heartbreaking!

The look on the face of the child in front is so tragic; having grandkids of my own, I don't know how I would react if I saw this look on their faces.

God Bless these kids!
