My new elephant baby

This is my new baby elephant, Arruba.  I am fostering her for 10 years, through the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa.   She was rescued on my 40th birthday and my dream prayer is that before my funding runs out that I will be able to visit her in Africa.  

My husband wouldn't let me get another dog or kitten. Instead I got an elephant. 'Cuz that's just how I roll.

Below is the story of her rescue.  I'll keep you updated on her progress and what life is like when we bring her home.  

(just kidding, she stays in Africa!)
