Usually, you don’t expect from children as young as 3 to understand the hard things in life such as disease and suffering. However, the 3-year-old Emily James has proven that you don’t have to be old to be wise or to understand what others are going through even though you haven’t experienced it yourself. This young girl has shown more compassion than many adults throughout their entire lifetime.
Amy James, Emily’s mom, showed her daughter pictures of kids with cancer who had lost their hair after chemotherapy. Amy explained that if Emily was willing to shorten her hair then they would donate it so wigs for sick children could be made of it. The woman wasn’t expecting that her daughter would agree knowing that she has been dreading getting her hair cut but Emily totally surprised her.
The girl felt really sad for the sick children and willingly let her uncle Matthew, who happens to be a hairdresser, cut her hair. However, under one condition – that her dolly gets a hair cut, too. After the new hairdos were done Emily stated that she and her dolly both looked very pretty.
