Ryanne's daddy lost his battle with colon cancer two years ago. Since that time, she has been growing her hair out in order to donate it to "Locks of Love", in honor of her daddy. As of Wednesday, I thought she might be on the verge of backing out, as she told me how nervous she was and that the anxiety was making her nauseated.
Well, she definitely wanted to go through with it, so I went with her yesterday to be her hand-holder and her official photographer. Following are some photos to help describe her experience:
LOCKS OF LOVE REQUIRES 10 INCHES
OF "VIRGIN", UNTREATED HAIR
MIGHT AS WELL USE THE SHEARS!
NO TURNING BACK!
I'M GOING TO VOMIT!
NOT SO BAD!
I'LL SURVIVE!Ryanne's proud papa is looking down on her now with a big smile on his face, knowing what a sweet and thoughtful little girl he raised. Oh, okay, I guess I'll take a smidgeon of credit for that, too. She really is a blessing to all of us who know and love her.
Love you, Baby Girl!
