We’re in Michigan this week visiting Toyin’s family, and I knew being in southeast Michigan, which surrounds Detroit, I would likely have a much better chance of finding a brown baby doll. I was right.
Of all places, my friend Tareeshia and I, found a whole shelf filled with Black babies at Big Lots.
When we got home we realized that the baby dolls were actually Spanish dolls, but I don’t care. I’m just happy to have another baby doll closer to Annika’s skin color.
