    Aww I'm moved because I've been there. I was like this dad when it comes to taking care of my 3-years-old sister. I was 16 when our mom had a cancer. Now, 3 years later, she is great and she's grown some hair. ❤️

    I cried from start to finish and maybe 5 minutes after. This made me so emotional on so many levels! My father did his best to our hair when my mom wasn't around. Loved this so much!
