Most children have had a doll or teddy bear which once was their dearest friend and most precious possession. Elizabeth was such a doll, but not just for one child. She was loved by many little girls over several generations. She was also packed away in a box many times, but always she was eventually taken out and given to another child. Elizabeth was a porcelain doll made in Germany and first given to Helen's great grandmother in 1852. Today she belongs to Helen's youngest daughter, Sarah Elizabeth who was given the doll with this note:
Dear Sarah,
I was given to your great great grandmother when she was a small child, so please handle me with care for I begin to feel my age. She named me Elizabeth."
This doll is old and fragile. She has had many adventures, one which changed her. Elizabeth is now not only old, but very wise.
