Miranda and Locks of Love

We're very proud of Miranda. A few months ago, Bobby, a good friend of ours, found out that he had cancer. Because of the treatment, Bobby lost his hair. Bobby's sister Caroline decided to have her hair cut for Locks of Love. When Miranda heard that Locks of Love helps boys and girls who lose their hair due to medical treatment, she decided that she wanted to donate her hair. There was only one problem: Miranda's hair wasn't long enough yet. So, for the last five months, Miranda has been growing her hair until it was long enough to donate to Locks of Love.

Well, it was long enough this week! Our neighbor, Christina, works at a nearby hair salon. She said that she would give Miranda a free haircut since she was donating her hair to Locks of Love. Here are some pictures of before, during, and after Miranda's haircut. We all think she looks beautiful with her new haircut. In fact, her haircut is almost as beautiful as her giving heart.

Cool... I have been seriously considering doing that myself. I mean, I don't use my hair, it just goes to waste if I cut it. So in about 3 more years, I'll be able to do it... probably :).

Good job Miranda!

Wow Wow Wow! I love the new 'do Miranda! You look SOO cute (I mean that in the non-baby way). Praise the Lord for your giving heart Miranda - never forget to keep putting others before yourself. Great job!

Thank you for your comments. I'm glad they'll use my hair to make wigs for boys and girls who don't have hair.
