I know something about turning gray. My hair has been various stages of gray for more than twenty-five years and now little remains of my hair’s original color. When I saw Mady for the first time after many months, I realized she is starting to turn gray on her face. She turned 9 years old on July 4. I can’t believe it’s been that long since I first set eyes on her as a one year old in Redding in 2008.
