Hair/Skin care questions
Help please please please
My DW and I go to approval panel next week and we already have a potential match which our sw is keen to get the ball rolling on once we've been approved (she seems to think we will pass panel without a problem although we're nervous as hell obviously)
The lo we have shown an interest in is mixed race her dad was mixed race white british/Afro-Caribbean and mum was white British and we have been told by our s/w that there could potentially be issues with her hair and skin changing as she gets older and obviously we have no problem with this but equally being a white British couple we don't know anything about skin care for a lo like this and are wondering if anyone can help with any advice for skin/hair care for a mixed race lo who is under 8. It has been stressed to us that we would need to be able to do things for her rather than sending her off to have things done.
As an example our sw (who is mixed race herself) has said "at the moment her hair is fairly straight brown hair but could become more "afro" as she gets older so if she decides she wants corn-rows you have to know how to do them for her, also her skin could darken and she will need different skin care to you" But she didn't really elaborate any more so kind of left us dangling a bit and thinking we're at a bit of a loss now. Any advice/hints/tips would be gratefully received thank you :-)
