My daughter has beautiful hair. She is pure adorableness.
Locks of Love, an organization that provides wigs for children with long-term medical hair loss.
I have participated a few times (I think it was 3 or 4 times) but not in Yael's memory.

Can a five-year-old understand what it means to donate her hair?
I don't really know.
But she was totally into the idea.

People asked me if she really understood what she was doing.
I don't know.
But does it really matter? She did it.
We will do and (perhaps) then we will understand.

Sometimes it takes something as simple as snipping a ponytail to help us remember what it all really means.
