When you first begin this hobby it can seem that you are alone in your collection, but the longer you are in it the more you will find friends.
Myself I have found several friends who I do consider friends. I have the added advantage then that it is possible to go out shopping for baby products with friends.
Although the connection with your friends may have begun through reborns, it does not mean that it will end there.
Myself I have found that one of my closest friends was found through our Youtube channel and i find that I now speak to my friend almost daily.
So when you do begin this hobby never think that you are alone.
We are all here for you and even if its just leaving a comment on here, you will find that you will have people ready and willing to be your friend. You will have people on your side.
So enjoy the hobby.
