"Hair Like Mine!"

Until today, my youngest daughter had never seen anyone who looks quite like her. She has oculocutaneous albinism, which means that although she is Chinese, she has very blonde hair, gray eyes, and pale skin. We have known for a few years that a family in the area has a granddaughter with the same condition, but the granddaughter lives in Kansas City. Well, on Friday, I ran into the grandmother in Wal-mart, and we remarked that we still really did need to get the girls together. She said, "Hey, they're coming for the family's Easter celebration- you should come and bring your kids!" So, I did.

It was so cute- as soon as she climbed out of the car, my daughter saw the other little girl and ran across the lawn to her. They hopped up and down, hugged, and one of them squealed, "She has hair LIKE MINE!" And they were instantly friends. That' my little girl on the left. I love it :)
