I started reborning as a sort of therapy for myself due to the loss of my oldest son and the loss of my ability to walk. Every baby I create makes me feel, not only happy but productive and a little bit stronger. My nursery has the name "Reborns by Zebra" because people with my primary disease, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome call themselves Zebras due to EDS being a more rare disease although some types are simply rarely diagnosed. I send information about my disease home with every baby to help spread awareness and I also always send something "zebra" be it a lovey, clothes, pacifier or hair bows.

Im an American but I have been living in France for 11 years now, my husband is French. I had five children and I am now a GiGi (grandma) to three little boys. I have two teenagers still living at home, my son and daughter, and both have autism. They did well in school until they started middle school. I am still homeschooling my daughter and my son is studying for his equivalency exam.

Due to my limitations my husband helps with the assembly of the babies plus all the shipping and paper work, also he has made the birth certificates. My 16 year old daughter helps with making pacifier leashes and she also acts as a model sometimes to hold the babies in pictures. So reborning has become a family "business" for us.

I take great care in painting my babies to look as realistic as possible using many layers of Golden fluid paints which are the highest quality and highest pigmented acrylic paints on the market. I also use Panpastel and coastal scents powders to help create even more realism. I protect and texture all of my babies with a couple layers of Golden matte varnish with UV protection and Americana soft touch varnish with matting powder. I never paint knock offs kits...only kits made by certified artist/sculptors.
I use only high quality glass beads weight. I also use high quality polyfil to make your baby snuggly soft. My larger babies have a special soft "spine" to prevent them from eventually slouching or some will have full armatures.

All my babies come to you from a smoke free, pet friendly, happy home.

If you want to watch me paint I have a new youtube channel
