So here's a kid I really admire.  He's 8 years old and has been growing his hair as long as I can remember.  He's been made fun of for as long as I can remember.  He's been called a girl as long as I can remember.  Inevitability, every soccer  game, when the opposing team walked on the field, one kid would shout, "I can't believe you have a girl as a goal keeper."  He would just shrug his shoulders and laugh. 

Liam2 When people called him names he would say "It's ok, I'm used to it by now."  He's never really cared what other people think of him and that's an extremely rare quality in a kid his age. 

With all that being said he decided about a year ago that when he cut his hair he would donate it to Locks of Love.  At seven years old he had no idea what locks of love was but he thought it would be a really cool idea after I told him what the organization was all about.  He new people with cancer, kids that had lost their hair Liamhair and felt like he could handle his part of the equation.

He grew his hair really long to the point that I was brushing dreadlocks out of it every other day.  We waited for it to get to the perfect required length and then called in the barber.  He had fun with the whole experience and it all makes sense because he is a really fun kid!

He's my son Liam and I love him.


You must be very proud of Liam! Awesome kid!
