New Hair

When we met Mariah, we noticed that not only was her hair ridiculously short, but it was also very thin and kind of crunchy feeling.  I figured that given how skinny she was (we could count her ribs on her back) that it was due to malnutrition. 

Well home nearly 5 months and I've noticed something!  She has all these spots on her head where she has new hair about 1/4 inch long.  There are spots on her forhead where its growing around the edge of her head right at the hairline and spots in the back where its growing out at the crown. 

It looks kind of silly, but I guess her body wasn't able to grow hair effectively and now it is! 

I'll see if I can get my phone to work and post a picture of the new hair growing on her forehead.

This is wonderful! It's amazing what good nutrition and care will do. Both of our boys had fairly full heads of hair, but it was brittle and almost wiry. Both have now thickened and gotten so much healthier.

I knew her hair could use some good food, but I had no idea that half of her head would just start growing more! We kept thinking that someone had cut it off really short but no... its just growing new clumps in random spots lol



We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
