Below is our story as it appeared on CNN

To all who share an interest in our story, a heart felt thank you. We have loved reading through your e-mails and posts. As you can imagine we have had a wonderful response from the above “Survival of the Fittest” segment which recently aired on CNN. Many of you wanted to place an order. We’ve created a Reservation Form that is easy and fast to complete.
We’re working on producing the Little Reps for you to give to someone special. Complete the reservation form and we will contact you when we are officially ready to process orders.

Until then, smiles and hugs!

    I just saw your story on cnn and think that what you’ve done is absolutely wonderful. But I was wondering is there anyway to get one of these as of now. Id love to have one to share your story with others.

    I love that these are coming to life! I can’t wait to read the book, see the movie and most importantly get a glimpse of the joy they will bring to so many people. It’s amazing what can be done when it comes from the heart. My girls LOVE them, and I do, too!!

    Hi Alicia,

    Thanks for your enthusiasm and support. I am working really hard on getting more creatures sewn. I will send you a message when they are ready. (I’m also trying to put together an order form for the blog site.)

  • Tricia says:

    Wow, you are an inspiration. What a terrific role model you are for your daughter and everyone who has a dream. Good luck and I can’t wait to see these everywhere! (just please…I don’t want to see a “made in China” tag on them when I do!)

  • Lynne Borsuk says:

    These creatures are representative of so many important emotions. I hope that kids and adults all over will use them and share them to help express their feelings.

    Well done!

  • Alison says:

  • Jacqueline says:

    Wonderful story! I am truly hoping to see your product on toy shelves everywhere. I think they are an important creation that will help, in small and big ways, many children everywhere (maybe even a few adults, too). Buena Suerte (Good Luck)! May your new year flourish with prosperity and success!

    When I saw Bo.Bo and read her concept, I immediately thought of my teenage daughter. Strange, hah? She is at a difficult time in her life where she feels grown up but is not. She has many decisions to make in her life and I thought if Bo.Bo could help her to slow down and really THINK through her options, she would stay on the right track more often. I would love to get one for her 16th birthday in May.

    Thanks so much for your kind comments Karen, Hina, and Ginger! I was neorvus about sharing this, so thank you for your support!Explaining my feelings as a mix of love, hope, and trepidation is the perfect way to describe them, Hina. But one thing I’ll say about holding Alex for the first time I just KNEW he was meant to be with us. He was so quiet and sad at first, but I could tell there was something special underneath it, and he just needed time to blossom. I’ll admit though that I was far more fearful when it came to Alina, and I did not have those same certain feelings. But I’m so grateful that we moved forward anyway, as she is a darling sweetheart and the perfect match for our family too!Karen, you always know the right thing to say thank you, my friend.Denise
