Our Story:


Our founder and CEO, Ramona Murdock, has over 30 years of experience in children's fashion design. Creating clothing for her own children, she was often asked, "Where did you get that?" When presented with the opportunity to share her talent and skills with others, she began designing children's special occasion clothing, helping thousands of mothers and grandmothers nationwide find charming clothing for their children's most memorable special occasions: first homecomings, Christenings, portraits, holidays, baptisms, First Communions, and weddings.

For the first twenty years, the Allie Wade line (named for her maternal grandmother) was sold in 1000+ upscale retail establishments, including major department stores and children's specialty boutiques nationwide. As the internet became an increasingly viable option to reach people on a more personal level, Ramona and her dedicated team made a significant course change in 2004: discontinuing the wholesale business of selling to retail stores and launching One Small Child, with the concept of making a wide selection of exquisite christening gowns, christening outfits, and Communion dresses quickly and conveniently available to anyone with internet access.

Our 29 years of service to many thousands of children's special occasion customers have given us a unique opportunity to learn how to best serve you. This knowledge has grown into an unparalleled approach to quality clothing and customer service. We hope that you will benefit from our experience and honor us with the privilege of being a part of your very special occasion.

Labor Practices:


Many of our girls dresses, christening gowns and outfits, are made in our facility in Blackfoot, Idaho, U.S.A. Our seamstresses and fulfillment staff earn above the established minimum wage and we consider all of them to be friends and part of our family. The building we work in is well lighted and ventilated, heated in the winter and cooled in the summer. We care deeply how people are treated and have a strong commitment to provide good jobs in our community and to have a pleasant work environment. I, and other members of my family, work along side our employees each day and appreciate them beyond measure for the wonderful service they give on your behalf.
