Thankfully, God has a way of bringing things to your attention. A friend of the family (going back about five generations on Mom's side there is actually a family connection --- so it's a sort of cousin) who was widowed a few years ago has now gained custody of three granddaughters, ages 14, 9 and 7. The two youngest were dropped off with not even a pair of shoes or pajamas. One of the girls has lived in more than 30 homes already, and every doll or toy she's had has been sold almost right away. She had never even had her own bed before, let alone owned a toy of her own. If someone gave her a present, it was taken away and sold. The oldest little girl had a doll, but the two younger girls really want to have their own dolls. At this same time, the grandmother is fighting terrible cancer, so things are stretched even for the daily stuff.
Here are some before pictures of the Josefina doll before restoration, as we got her. This is also the Julie seen above. She came with some kind of blue make-up all over her face, but this came off with baking soda and elbow grease! The photo of Josefina's toes shows one foot having nothing done and the other having had the nail polish remover applied, but still stained and needing Oxy cream treatment.
We're pretty positive that this Josefina was an original PC doll. She had a very large body (we actually swapped the cloth body for a newer Kaya body, so that we can send newer clothes later on), and she looks amazingly like my 1997 PC Josefina. For fun, here are some comparison photos of the restored Josefina (wearing the "Play Loud" shirt) and my Josefina (wearing the red AGP shirt).
