You are so sweet. Here I am, not liking my hair, and you like it. I like yours, but mine would never do what yours does. When it's straight, like after braids, it is wispy and thin and blecch!
I would like to see progress pics while you're growing out your bangs. I am trying for the second or third time to grow mine out, and I hope I can do it this time. But I have "baby bangs" that don't grow to more than about 2 inches long, and I think they'll always be there. I don't know what they will do once my other bangs are grown out.
I'm excited that you might adopt, too! How neat that you know some children adopted from Ukraine. They sound like sweet girls. Please do visit my blog and e-mail me, if you like. I would enjoy talking with you some more. Auch, spreche ich ein bisschen deutsch...es macht spass!
