Emily was once an orphan baby elephant at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya. She was later released back into the wild where she had a chance to live her adulthood. In December 23rd, 2014, the caretakers in the wildlife trust got to experience something incredibly heartwarming beautiful.
Emily returned to her foster home without any incitement, to give birth to her calf in the company of the people who played an important part in bringing her up. They filmed the event and fortunately for us, they shared it on the internet for all of us to see.
Emily was deprived of a family at a young age, but now she has two daughters of her own. They are named Eve and the newly born calf in the video, Emma. The herd was ecstatic when they saw the little calf and they quickly gathered around the mother to help her out with her newborn. Pretty soon Emma is up and moving about, and huddling next to mom while the rest of the herd celebrates her arrival.
It’s so sweet to watch them all together. Emma is by far the smallest, and she’s adorable walking around in her clumsy way. The keepers at the trust were touched and thrilled that Emily’s decision to deliver her baby at the trust. It is flattering that she remembers them and how well they took care of her, and she still trusts them with her most valuable possession.
