Chapter 2 Fairygod Mother

I am happy to say that God blessed princess T with many people to love her in the 12 months before we could bring her home and one was her fairy god mother. I get teary-eyed just thinking about this woman. She took time with T and her foster mom every other week and they did her hair. Now you may say, "HAIR" is that really that important, well the foster mom didn't know how to fix T's lovely locks and this women gave of her time to spend time and love on T. I had the priveledge of meeting her and she gave me my own crash course in doing T's hair. I know this fairy God mother prayed for a family for T and continues to pray for her. She is a very special lady.

Yesterday, I took my own stab at doing her hair. It took 1 hour to take the braids out and then another hour to put them back in 5 different sittings. It really was an all day afair, So with the help of Aaron and our favorite furry monster Elmo we did it! And here are the pictures to prove it

sweet...good job Valerie - I'm impressed and just think each time it will get easier! SO awesome to hear how God has shown His love to T in obvious ways - loving your daughter even before you knew her or could hold her - beautiful picture of the Father that He truly is!
Hey - I like your updates on your blog by the way - great song.
Love you friend!

I'm learning, too! We should compare notes. Hints I've picked up the past few months: braid it wet. Oil her scalp every day. Do her hair in half hour spurts. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize...And yes, Elmo and a treat can take you very far! :)
