A. thinks she's okay.
But she LOVES her new Dora doll. Dora has long, straight brown hair -- hair that A. spent the entire holiday break brushing over and over. She told her grandma, "I don't have pretty hair."
Meanwhile, Cecille sits forlorn on her bedroom shelf. But she's there, and that's what matters.
In fact, the other day A. whipped off her winter cap and said, "I want my hair to blow in the wind."
And when it did, she laughed, full of delight.
