I want you to see this photo up close and tell me does it look real.
That doll is what they called life-like doll or "reborn". Some women have these dolls for the substitution of their lost child, child they'll never have or their grandchildren who live far away from them. This is actually not a new phenomenon BUT I just recently found out about this when I read this NEWS from NST. So, I did some reading from the other sources just to find out more about this issue. Apparently, this has started from 2008! There was even one funny incident happened in Australia when police smashed a car's window to save a baby. Read HERE to find out more.
This is what I think about this:
I pity the grieving mummy or even those who can't have children on their own. BUT I reckon rather than pay thousands of dollars, it's better to adopt unfortunate children. They need somebody who can take care of them and they also need to be loved. What's the use of loving dolls who can't understand the meaning of LOVE?
