Okay well good news. Remember how I had to send in pics of Jazz for the cover of American girl magazine? Well her agent called me and they picked 20 girls to see in person and Jazz was picked. The bad thing is there are only 6 spots in the magazine and 20 girls. We go to Chicago on the 27th and they talk to Jazz and the other girls in person, then we all leave and wait for an hour. During this time your agent calls to tell us if we got it or not. If we do then we go back for a fitting and then shoot the next day. If we don't then we just go home I just think it would be so hard if she did not get it. I don't ever want her to feel bad about herself but at the same time she has to know that in this buisness sometimes you are not always chosen. Cross your fingers that she gets it and that I don't have to break her little heart.
but Tia, it's not you breaking her little heart. she knows it's not your choice. and given what you've told us about Jazz, I don't think her heart will be broken. she's stronger than that, and I'm sure she'll see an upside to it if she's not chosen. but my fingers are crossed!

I'll keep that in my prayers girl! Like Gwen said though, she's a strong girl. She knows that she does her best and that's more than enough! She's beautiful inside and out and if one job doesn't work out, there will be many more in its' place! Hugs to her!

Just think of it like a sport, sometimes you don't win. I know it will be really hard though if she is not chosen, especially driving up to Chicago, etc. I really hope she does. It will be awesome for both of you. I'll cross my fingers.
I agree what the other girls said! They can't pick everybody, but hopefully she gets it. She already did great by making it to the "top 20"
Thanks everyone, you are all right where she is a strong girl but I just wish it was go home and we will let you know, not wait in Chicago for an hour and get all excited and then wait for the phone to ring. I guess it is okay I mean she could get it right. Okay done rambling lol
Just being in the top 20 is amazing IMO. I will cross my fingers for her too!
