Almost 2 years ago my son decided he wanted to grow his hair to donate it to children with hair loss. He didn’t like that he saw girls being the ones to donate when he knew he had gorgeous hair. He informed us that he was growing it to donate. I want to share some hair donation tips for kids. I also want to share an honest look at what hair donation looks like for boys.
Do you want to know what hurts my heart more than almost anything? It’s really a simple answer. I hate when a mom has a desperate desire to stay home with her children but circumstances make it a no go. Whether the reason is financial, emotional, or a spouse who won’t agree this mom is left feeling trapped going to work. I want to say something now before I get a million e-mails, this is not referring to the moms who love to work. I am not judging that at all. However, for a mom who doesn’t want to work, it really can feel like a trap.
When my daughter was born I was not prepared at all for the road motherhood set me on. I had a lot of plans, ideas, and dreams. A lot of it fell short of my expectations and I struggled. I adored my daughter but I was in a bad place. There were a few people who prioritized creating a new mom safe space and I will be forever grateful.
