My name is Sabriam Loll and
I am the artist of Eden’s Little Ones nursery.
I first encountered a reborn when I was about 11 or 12 years old. A friend of my mom collected dolls. She had a few dolls that might have been reborns, though I didn’t know they were called that. She had one little baby boy that looked so real. I loved him & carried him around every time we went to her house, up until I had my own live babies.
Quite a few years ago, I came across another doll that looked real. I saw that it was called a “reborn.” I was totally captivated & began searching for more reborns. I have always enjoyed children, especially during that sweet baby time. My children are growing up quickly &, because of medical reasons, I lost a baby & cannot have more. I have done childcare since I was 10, but my love for babies is still going strong.
I wanted one of these reborn dolls. I wanted to make them for myself & to bring joy to others. So I starting researching how reborns are made, techniques, materials – everything I could find. I studied for a long time & then decided I was ready. I placed a few very expensive & large orders online, went to the craft store for other items, & made a workspace for creating these sweet babies.
Then came the waiting, which was the hard part. My fingers longed for the vinyl, the blank figure, so I could create these precious babies. The materials came, then the first sculpt finally arrived, & I began right away.
In January of 2009, I made my first reborn for my youngest daughter & have been reborning babies ever since. Joy and satifaction is found in the process of creating each baby & I love every minute of it.
The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful gift in giving me this talent – I thank Him for it every day!
