Why Do YOU Reborn babies?

I reborn because its therapeutic for me. I have three children and then had my tubes tied. Then we got them untied coming up on 3 years ago in May. I havent had a single wiff of a positive pregnancy test :frowning: We decided we wanted as many as God would have for us. Sometimes though, the mistakes we make are permanent and at least I can help show our children that its a good thing to trust in the Lord in this area. We often realize too late just how precious children are: they grow us as a person so much, teach us so much about ourselves, and remain as a legacy of our own walk in life after we are gone from this world. My heart aches. SOOOOO, I say all that to say, I wish God would open my womb again. In the meantime, its so nice to be able to hold a “baby” real or not, and to buy clothes and to give them to others!

So why do you reborn?

Reborning is very therapeutic! I have always loved baby dolls. An old friend of mine joked that I make (reborn)babies because I can’t make (human) babies anymore. I have 6 children (3 of each).

Just remember IF God does open your womb again, it will be in His time. If not, He has a good reason for it. He has a very good plan for your family! :slight_smile: In the meantime…reborning is very therapeutic.
God bless!

PS I’m sure you already know, reborning is addictive too. :smile:

I’ve always loved dolls and babies. This is the perfect hobby/business for me. Also, it’s therapeutic and addictive and there are always new babies being produced.
Perhaps it was God’s plan for you to only have 3 children. There’s a reason for everything and He knows what He’s doing.

My mom is a doll collector and I decided to buy one from Ebay. I paid like $400.00 for this baby because I knew she would love it. Granted he is very cute, but I needed a hobby at that point of time in my life. So I thought to myself I could do that, and I did ceramics for many years. So I bought a starter kit with three preemies from BB. The rest is history. I find it very relaxing plus I love a challenge. I also love it when I sell them. I am a mother of many babies :smile:

I started for my granddaughter, and myself as that was our special time, then when all the kids and grand kids moved out, I had empty next syndrome so I started reborning more and more and now I am addicted as I love seeing these little ones come to life.

Babies!!! I love them. Even in high school I said I was going to be a Nicu/ ob nurse or a flight attendant. I love little ones and all kid. I never baby sat or anything, I worked the local mall at the Orange Julius from 88 to 90’. I had my 3 and stopped and I think I should of had 2 more. I ht 30 & wanted a baby again. But, that was not happening. Now, I have grand kids and art has always been my hobby, so it is less of a mess in the house. I get a kick out of making blank vinyl come to life.

I have been in love with babies since my earliest recognition, there is nothing in this world more pure or innocent then a baby, when you look at them you see Gods most perfect miracle and when they look at you it’s through eyes of love untouched by the worlds ugliness.

I strated to make reborns a year after my baby passed away. He was 39 but when you lose a child age doesn’t matter. I went into a depression after that and was put on medication. I told myself I would be off of them in a year. That was when I started reborns . I tell everyone that making reborns is my thearpy.

I got started out as a collector because it curbs my baby fever, and then I got burned by a seller on eBay with a doll that wasn’t as described so I decided I’d try painting my own.

As far as reborning, I love the artistry of it. When I’m taking my time, I also find it very relaxing. However with my work schedule it is very rare that I get to paint anymore xD

I love babies and dolls!! I used to make soft-sculpture dolls in the '80’s. Got married, had kids, work, etc. so no time for hobbies. Kids are now grown. When I discovered reborns, I HAD to make them. :slight_smile:

I have to be doing art almost everyday, in all my spare moments, and have since I was three. I love babies and can’t have anymore real ones, so art and babies seemed like a great combination to me! I also love realism in art, and getting my babies more and more realistic is an ongoing challenge. I love it. I wonder sometimes if one day I will be through and want to to do something else. Needle-felting and sculpting both call to me, but so far it’s babies, babies, babies! (And the fact that this is the only art/craft that I have ever done that supported itself! That’s a big plus.

I love to create art…and REBORN babies are just so much fun and interesting for me to REBORN…I also love babies and clothing etc…and even the marketing aspect is beginning to get easier to me…but the most important part of reborning is creating a beautiful piece of art that will be loved and cherished by whoever becomes the REBORN baby’s forever Mommy…!!

It feels really good to see these babies and know that cause of you this Doll exists…and I love the whole process and know that what I am doing has an impact…!!..:slight_smile:

For as long as i can remember, i have always loved dolls and babies. I discovered reborns at 12, was completely enchanted, and for years asked my dad if i could have one (the answer was always no :smile: ) He did eventually agree that i could make them (it only took about 4.5 years to convince him! :stuck_out_tongue: ) and i have been hooked since. Even in my interim of being very sick and “giving up the hobby” i still peeked in at the reborn community. Im convinced that this is a hobby one cannot “give up.”

I reborn because I love the artistic aspect of it. I work with children so don’t miss holding babies, but I do miss shopping for babies. My daughter got me into reborning, but have continued to keep my self busy. I have 3 kids, help my husband with the daycare and I’m currently in college, but it seems that it is not enough for me. It is said that a wondering mind is a playground for the devil, so I keep mine busy.

***Now… the real reason is that I need help. Hi, my name is Merari and I’m a Rebornholic

I reborn because I am a minor so no real ones for me, but I love babies, dolls, animals, all of the above. I feel like I can help the community with the therapeutic aspect. I love them and I don’t know about you but I hate it when people say jokingly, “I didn’t know you had a baby.” It drives me nuts. I am 12, no I didn’t have a kid.

When I first seen them I was like “WHY???” lol, then I started researching it… and was amazed and the artistic ways of making a blank kit look real! Then my kids seen them… and wanted one. But I was not going to buy 5 complete babies for kids under 13… so I bought everything to make them.
I love how much they all change and how much each kit varies per artist! I am very crafty and always doing something… and this blends them all together is a great big bunch of awesome! :wink: I can paint, draw, glue, stuff, make hairbows/headbands, certain clothes items, crochet, and shop all for one baby! It combines a lot of crafts/activities I was already doing! :slight_smile:
Also my last baby is growing up and I am just now getting rid of the big baby stuff and it is kinda tough.No more bassinet, no more infant carseat, soon no playpen, or highchair… no tiny clothes, no tiny shoes, etc. But NOW>>>> hahaha, I can buy baby stuff again. lol

I have 3 children and wish more than anything I could have more. I had a complete hysterectomy and even if I had not, my husband refused to have anymore. Making the babies is therapeutic to me and I still get that feeling of holding a new baby. Of course nobody in my family gets this!
