When I was a child, like most little girls, I loved dolls. I especially loved dolls that had blonde hair and blue eyes because they were just like me.
It's only natural for children to be attracted to toys that remind them of themselves. However, sadly there aren't so many options available for children who look different to most due to disabilities or medical conditions.
Clare Tawell, a 39-year-old mother of two from the UK, decided to take matters into her own hands when she couldn't find a doll with hearing aids for her 4-year-old daughter, Matilda, who is deaf. Clare created a nonprofit organization called Bright Ears UK to start modifying baby dolls to match children with disabilities.
