I am thankful for the family - blood and not - that keeps me in sane in the moments when I question whether or not moving 1000 miles away was worth it - and on the days when its not, I'm thankful for snail mail, voicemail and email that keep me connected to everyone that I love. I am still getting used to this stage of life - and I am thankful for the moments when everything feels just right!

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is dedicated to the protection and conservation of wildlife and habitats in Kenya. Best known for the rescue and hand-rearing of milk dependent orphaned baby elephants and rhinos, so that they can return to the wild when grown, the DSWT also manages anti-poaching teams, mobile veterinary units and community outreach programs.
The save orphaned elephants and rhino's who are often left that way due to poaching. What an honor to help this organization serve the animals of Kenya and continue to fight for better anti-poaching laws.
On my bucket list of life is to see an African Safari - and I sure hope that by the time I get there - we still have many of these animals living happily in the wild and not just captivity.
