Baby – a little bit of heaven sent down to earth.
It’s been a couple of crazy days on our part of the world. We had a hurricane that didn’t cause much damage but left us with a lot of rain and about two days without power. When the sun finally showed up and the electricity came back on, we found this sweet baby boy abandoned in front of our door. He was inside this wool crocheted cocoon, wearing nothing but a piece of cloth wrapped around as a diaper. I became very worried and held him right away while my husband searched around the neighborhood to see if we could find who left him there. Of course we had no luck and had to just keep him in the house. I gave him a warm bath and decided to make him some clothes. He’s real tiny and doesn’t really fit into real baby’s clothes.
He got along with the kids right away and even our pets seem drawn to him. I must say he’s a very special boy. There is something about him that makes you fall in love with him from the get go. He radiates peace and warmth. The only way I can describe it is that he makes me feel like Christmas. He’s also very smart and well behaved, and I believe he’s somehow magical. I could swear he turned his water into juice. I mean, I gave hima sippy cup with water. I am sure it was water because I would never ever give an infant juice. I turned my back for a minute and when I look back at him he was drinking juice. Another day I could swear I saw him crawling over the water on the kiddie pool. My husband doesn´t believe me but I know what I saw. I freaked out for a minute but then thought it was a cool trick and maybe he’s some kind of magical being in training. I love everything magical, so I’m pretty curious to find out who or what he is.
As much as we love this sweet baby boy, he needs someone that can take care of him properly and right now we have our hands full with the little ones of our own. Of course we will take care of him until we can find him a loving home, but we are hoping that could be soon.
Baby Jesús is a 10 inch natural fibers baby boy doll. His skin is Laib Yala red brown color, his limbs and torso are firmly filled with clean wool and glass beads.

Arms are sewn directly to the torso with upholstery and polyester thread. They are very floppy. His face is firmly needle felted, soft sculpted, and hand embroidered with cotton embroidery floss. Jesús’ hair is a dark wild brushable mohair wig cap. It can be gently brushed. He’s fully soft sculpted, weighted in the torso, arms, and legs, and he’s anatomically correct.
