Sara Ava Donated Her Hair

Sara Ava has been growing her hair out since I donated my hair last August. She had to have 8 inches to donate. We know some very special children adopted from Guatemala that have leukemia so Sara Ava wanted to give a child that needed black hair, her hair. She has been ready for months to get it cut and today was finally the day.
The before pictures....... You can see how long it had gotten.

Karen cutting Sara Ava's hair.....

She was so proud of her ponytail!

She loves her new hair cut! She tells everyone that now she looks like Mommy!

When we got home Lilee said Sara looks like Dora. I want to look like Dora too. So I took her in the bathroom and cut her hair myself. I have to get 3 kids hair cut this week , I can't afford 4.

So here is Lilee's hair cut. Tomorrow I will cut her bangs. She was so excited about her hair cut that she was too wiggly, I gave up on the bangs.

Lilee only had 4 inches to cut off so she did not have enough to donate. Her hair is sooo fine that there was hardly any hair compared to Sara Ava's.

Sara Ava was so excited for their daddy to get home to show him their hair. She said "Daddy is going to tell us we look so beautiful now. " I had to clue him in to make sure he did!
So what do you all think????

I LOVE their new cuts!!! Donating hair is an awesome thing! The year after my grandfather died of cancer I donated 26" of hair SERIOUSLY!! I also donated it again last year when I cut 18" off! Now I can't seem to let it grow out!
