First haircuts

In Haiti boys don't get their first haircut until after their first birthday.  Here at COTP, we honor that cultural rule.  We also ask permission from biological parents before we cut anyones hair to ensure that they don't want to grow their child hair out.  

Recently we had three boys receive their first hair cuts.  All were well over a year, but we loved their hair so much that we waited to cut it.  However it was finally time.  All three boys sat very well for their first cut and did amazing.  Below are some before, during, and after pictures of our amazing children!
