Harmonie-Rose Ivy Allen was just eleven months old when she was diagnosed with meningitis B. As a consequence, the little girl from Bath, UK, had to have both her arms and legs amputated, but when she was given a special quadruple amputee doll recently, Harmonie finally found a friend she could relate to.

“Mummy, she’s just like me,” said Harmonie, now two, according to ABC News. The doll was modified by A Step Ahead Prosthetics, a US-based company that makes American Girl dolls look like amputees. Parents send them dolls and they modify them free of charge so that children with missing limbs don’t feel so alienated by their amputations.

“As you can see, she is already loved very much in this house and I know she will be Harmonie’s best friend forever,” wrote Harmonie’s parents on their Facebook page called Hope 4 Harmonie.
