Staring at her special doll last week, a British toddler knew she had an instant, new best friend.
Harmonie-Rose Ivy Allen, 2, is a quadruple amputee whose limbs had to be removed after she contracted meningitis when she was 11 months old.
Her new best buddy is an American Girl doll named Rebecca made specially for Harmonie. Rebecca also is a quadruple amputee whose prostheses are removable.

“Her eyes lit up,” Freya Hall, Harmonie’s mother, told TODAY. “She said, ‘Mummy, she’s like me!’ She was so happy.”
