Sylvia's Beautiful Braids!

This is Sylvia's 3rd trip to the salon since she came home at age five.  Since they shaved her head while she lived in Uganda, it has been a process to grow her hair out and slowly get her used to all of the pulling and brushing that goes into doing your hair.  It hasn't always been pleasant, but she is a trooper!

At home I would have taken multiple days to do her hair because I give her a lot of breaks and I always get interrupted. (hard to believe I know). At the salon you stay until it is done so that part is good.  The part that is not so good is that the parting and braiding took three hours!!  She sat for three straight hours.  No complaints.  No dramatic sighs.  No tears. No wiggles.  This girl is amazing!
