Identifying A Porcelain Doll?

I got this doll in 2015 or 2014. I do not quite remember. But it was without a box or anything. Always finding her pretty but never knowing what she was from. A collection? Something a person made etc. I found a picture of someone selling a doll that looked similar and my search lead me to Franklin Mint/ Franklin Heirloom Dolls.

It is possible it is nothing, I found a catalogue but didn't find her in there so was hoping the wondrous world of the internet could perhaps shed some light to this. Thank you in advance.

Are you just trying to identify your doll or did you wish to know the value of this doll?
Did you look for marks/names/numbers on her back/neck? If there are marks then you should upload a picture and someone will be able to help you with your question.
I'm not sure if she is a Franklin Mint or maybe a Danbury Mint or Ashley Drake as all of these companies mass produced similar dolls.
If you are looking for value then you can almost assume that no matter the brand, her value will be from $10-$30 (usually the lower end without a box and papers). The value cannot always be realized as there are thousands of similar dolls listed for sale online and it is estimated that less than 10% will ever sell (some sellers leave dolls listed for months/years).
The market for dolls like this has been flooded for years and the value and sales are still dropping.

If you only wish to identify your doll there are several doll forums that may be able to help you identify her.
Just Google - vintage doll forums and join any one you wish to ask.

How tall is she?

What is her body made from (is it stuffed or porcelain)?

Are there any marks on the back of her neck?

Maybe with more info, I can help.
