Hey Ani, I love your comment, and that you could visualise the baby being born, standing and then actually when nudged by his mother took a few unsteady steps. Miraculous! Love and hugs, Jennifer.

I'm so glad you can picture them in the wild dear Vijay others think of a zoo when a giraffe is mentioned and don't quite get the gist of the excitement and the danger of predators been around to grab the baby. Thank-you for a lovely comment my friend. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer

Thank-you my dear friend Akkina - My husband and I feel privileged to have witnessed this scene at the Kruger National Park. We were in awe as we watched and more cars joined us until there were easily 30 cars vying for a good spot to watch this scene. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer

This is just a magnificent reply - I can sense how you would love to see something like this in the wild Darlene my friend. I was an amazing event that we were absolutely privileged to watch happening before our very eyes, and yes how amazing nature is that the baby stood up after a few gentle nudges from mummy. Thank-you Darlene, H u gs and blessings. Jennifer.

Hi Jan, thank-you my friend - we were actually lucky enough to witness this on one of our trips to the Kruger National Park. I have just read the two poems that John wrote as tributes to you and Eve - they are exactly what both of you are, just wonderful. I think John is too sweet for words to write these poems. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.
