A devastated divorced mum is going viral after spending thousands on creepy ‘reborn’ dolls which she claims serves as an ideal replacement for her kids.
The mum spoke about how lonely and depressed she felt after getting separated from her husband. Moreover, the fact that her own children chose to move into their dad’s home, leaving her all alone, was another major setback. Being all alone, the mum found a rather strange way to cure her loneliness and depression. And that meant purchasing dolls that appear life-like and very human by nature.
The mum was identified as 42-year-old Liz Watson who hails from Virginia who has now been renowned as a reborn mother for obvious reasons. And what may have started as a hobby revolving around doll collection is now a reality for dealing with her traumatic emotional and physical loss.
“I watched online videos on YouTube and that’s how it slowly but surely grew on me. Now, my hobby is a part of my life and I have nine beautiful reborn baby dolls.” They even have their own names, she explained.
Liz separated from her husband in the year 2010 and since then, things have been pretty rough for her. In 2013, she made the choice to move with her two sons as far away from that marriage as possible. They even shifted to a completely different part of the country.
Unfortunately, her two sons just couldn’t cope up with the new move and change and hence opted to move in back with their father in Kansas. The heartbreaking decision really hurt the mum, leaving her upset and depressed for days.
The sense of loss was soon overcome with feelings of joy as the mum purchased her ‘reborn’ doll in December 2016. And over the years, her collection has grown to new heights, now comprising of nearly 9 dolls in total.
