Aura is studying to be a teacher. Another of of long time sponsored children is in the Philippines studying to be a nurse. We have 2 other little ones coming along who write about their family and how they are doing in school.
We're told the child's name but not her village. We exchange letters through the organization (Project Hermano Pedro/CFCA/Unbound) which will arrange a meeting for us if we should ever visit the country. Actually, she's not a kid anymore. We've sponsored Aura for 12 years. She's in college now. When she graduates they will assign us another little girl. Before Aura our child was Claudia who also aged out of the program. 1 day ago
I'm finding that using a really good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner helps a lot with the fly-aways . . . L'Oreal Nutrishimmer Crystal makes a noticeable difference with the shininess too.
But: ultimately it's all about cut, and just accepting the kind of hair I have. Only took me about 63 years to get there . . . !!!! Maybe the attitude will run down my neck and affect body-acceptance took eventually: d'you think? 2 days ago
My hair (floppy, fine, stick straight) is cooperative ONLY when I spend quite a lot of money on excellent haircuts every six weeks. I'm frugal about clothes -- I don't skimp on haircuts! But: I don't spend any money on hair colour, perms or fancy styles. It's all in the cut!!
(And yes I would LOVE to have curly hair: any attempt I make to put curl into my hair lasts for about 32 seconds, even if I use product . . . ) 3 days ago
