Somebody to lean on

One of the most exciting moments in visiting the David Sheldrick camp in East Tsavo, Kenya, was watching wild elephants, who used to be orphans at that camp, were released to the wild, and now have their own babies. When one of them brought her baby to "show" the keepers, everyone were very excited and emotional. We all pray that this baby will not have to experience what his mother did.
