Here are just a few words from the girls themselves describing how having this opportunity available to them makes them feel. You will find some very simple but powerful statements from these young girls.

 “When I get my hair done I feel important and have a better day. Getting my hair cut, styled or colored makes me feel better about myself.  It really lifts my spirits.  I am very thankful for you taking the time to visit and do our hair.  I am very grateful.  It means so much to me.  God bless, and thank you very much.”


“Thank you so much for spending your time with us and giving us products that we can use.  I also want to thank you for caring about us enough to donate beauty items to us.  It means a lot to me to have a support system that helps get things that we do not have the money to get.”


“I really love the haircut that you gave me.  It makes me feel good about myself that my hair is pretty again.  Also-the lotions and toiletries are so lovely. Thanks so much.  I love my haircut and how you styled it.  When people do things like this it gives girls like me confidence and more self-esteem.  It makes me feel like I am beautiful on the inside and outside.” 

  
“Getting my hair done a regular basis would help boost my self-esteem by looking presentable and preparing me for my future.  Looking presentable is very important by allowing people to be comfortable with themselves.  Also it will allow me to be more comfortable with myself and the way I look and present myself.”

 “To get my hair done would be just great.  It will make people look at my face more and not my body.  I feel my hair looking nice brings out my face.”

 

 “As a foster child, there are so many things you miss out on – like birthday parties and family fun nights and something as simple as a hug from someone who loves you.  You don’t get new clothes at the beginning of the school year or even quality school supplies.  There are just so many areas that these children miss out on and the opportunities are limitless. “

 “I read the article in the DLN today and wanted to take a moment to say you are truly an inspiration. I myself was put into the foster care system as a teen, and we had VERY limited funds to spend on the basics(shampoo,makeup) let alone a haircut/style.

I'm so touched by your kindness and wish that myself and my other foster sisters, would have had someone like you to help us out. One area that has always concerned me is the "after high scholl graduation" stage w/ these children. Once they are 18 they are automatically released (at least this is the way it was) without much support at all.

Everyday I think about what I want to do and what I can do to help these children who are currently going through this. I haven't figured it out just yet, but my ultimate goal is to somehow give back. Thanks for all that you do! “
