Pantene Beatuful Lengths

For the last 6 months I have been letting my hair grow out. This was something I have been wanting to do for the longest time; but every time my hair gets within donation length, I can't stand it any longer, and I cut it.

So, two months ago, after having already been three or four months since my last trim and 6 months from my last major cut, I decided to wait another two months before I cut my hair. In those two months, my hair grew enough to cut and donate to Pantene Beautful Lengths. Pantene's program receives donations from individuals like me and creates wigs that are then given to cancer patients. This is such an awesome program, and finally, I got to be a part of it today.

My hair is a bit shorter than I had anticipated. The minimum length to donate is 8 inches. For about an hour last night, I considered waiting another month just so my hair wouldn't be that short. But, I decided to go ahead today! So, it's short, but it will grow again, and someone else will be wearing my hair at Christmas and enjoying my beautiful lengths!!

You are such a sweetheart! I know some lucky lady (or girl) will feel beautiful with her new hair. You have such great hair too :).

Love the new cut! What did little guy think, or did he notice?

I have been googling duplication 7q11.23 this weekend because my little boy (5) was recently diagnosed with it. There isn't much about it, and many children who have it. When I came across your blog, especially the poop issues I knew I had to leave you a message. My little boy has all the signs (autism spectrum, growth issues, speech, and constipation, and etc.) Feel free to follow his page at MysteryMikey. I would love to keep in touch with you even though we live far from each other. Please know I will keep your child in my prayers. Hope o hear from you soon.
