Woman Creates Inspiring Custom Lookalike Dolls For Kids With Disabilities

Amy Jandrisevitz, a woman from Wisconsin is creating incredible lookalike dolls for children with disabilities and illnesses in an attempt to help them feel less alone. The doll maker's incredible journey started five years ago when she was approached by a mom who asked her to customize a unique doll for her daughter who unfortunately lost a leg due to an amputation. From there, she continued receiving requests and eventually started a nonprofit called "A Doll Like Me". Although each doll costs $100, Amy covers any expenses that parents can't afford out of her own pocket. The aim is to stop children who have skin, limb, or facial differences to feel ostracized. Here are some of Amy's incredible creations.

Woman's Tweet Praising Short Husband Inspires Others To Do The Same

When it comes to picking a partner, we all have certain requirements or types. Whether it's hair color, skin tone, or physique, everyone has their thing. But one thing that most women in the western heterosexual dating world have in common is their desire for a man who is taller than them. Without going into the evolutionary reasons for this, this is often a deal-breaker for women, who have started writing this stipulation on their dating profiles. Men aren't happy about it for the most part (especially those who aren't 6 feet tall) and have begrudgingly started putting their height on the apps with the statement "because apparently that matters". While it's obvious that height isn't everything, one woman endorsed this in a tweet about her husband who is shorter than her, expressing how happy she is with her "5"5 king". Women felt inspired to post pictures of their shorter significant others saying how happy they are. Of course, there were the haters, but Lizz had great comebacks for them all. Check out the thread below.

Inspiring Thread Of People Accomplishing Their Dream At All Ages

A truly inspiring thread that everyone should read. Age is just a number. You don't have to have it all figured out by a certain age -- in fact, a majority of us don't find our paths until much later in life and that's OK. 

Everyone's journey is different, as author Tim Hiller says, "Don't compare your beginning to someone else's middle, or your middle to someone else's end. Don't compare the start of your second quarter of life to someone else's third quarter."

Never give up on your dreams. 

Here are people who are accomplishing their dreams, regards of their age:
