Hiking with the Hamblins Sept. 2008

Emma and Devree camping May 2008

As many of you know our good friends here in Dayton have a daughter who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, and it’s cancerous. If you want to read their story you can click on Devree on my blog.
Devree has had a huge impact on my Emma. When Emma was in Kindergarten she would sit with Emma on the bus and make sure she made it to her classroom safely. Devree is 5 years older then Emma but has always treated Emma as an equal. She has attended Emma’s birthday parties, and is never embarrassed about hanging out with little pipsqueaks, I think was her term of endearment for Emma and her friends.
Anyway, Devree has shaved her head for the radiation that she is currently undergoing, and wants a wig so Emma was very excited to donate her hair for this purpose. So today Emma got her hair cut and I just wanted to share the before and after pictures. I think she looks older, but very cute.

  1. I wanted to give hair but mine is too short! Hope you keep bloggen about these wonderful things! Your Trip to the Big City looked fun!

  2. That is the sweetest thing ever! Her hair reminds me of all of her older O'Barr aunt's hair in pictures when they were younger, except for the color of course. I'm sure she gets her sweetness, and her hair, from her mom & dad:)
