We now have a mailing list of people looking for this lamb.
I’m looking for a RUSS No. 2790 11 inch long cream beanie velour lamb named LOVE. It has a tan velour face and ears, and it’s embroidered with a BLUE CROSS on the chest.
I need this lamb!!! We’ve been looking far too long, and we can’t do surgery on the one we have anymore….he’s about unfixable. It HAS to be a blue cross.
This particular lamb was bought for my son by my grandmother and great-grandmother and given to him when he was six weeks old. He was born Aug. 98. My grandmother and great grandmother are still alive and well…yes five generations. Anyways he takes this lamb….yes even to this day-everywhere! He named the lamb Lovie, and he goes to scouts, family vacations, doctor appointments…which is 3 shots every other week…lots of ER visits because he is asthmatic.
Our family and extended family are still in awe sometimes as my son is getting older but takes lovie everywhere. I say why rush them into adulthood… let kids be kids.
Well, Lovie is just about dead. I’ve done so many surgeries that my son says, ‘Mom his skin is worn off!’ He’s been asking for a new one, so we can put this lovie in a box to have something left of it to show future children and grandchildren of our own that my son’s grandmother and great-grandmother bought this for him.
I can’t even emphasize how much it would mean for him to receive a new one. He’s still being loved even in this condition. We wash less regularly and of course he has to be in stockings and then dad’s tube sock and tied tight. He’s lost a lot of beads over the years…is quite thin but loved beyond words.
Thanks for any help you may have in us finding a new Lovie.
