My younger daughter, the one I refer to as Gothgrrl on the blog, has always loved elephants. From a young age, she told me she was going to grow up and get a job taking care of elephants. I never told her she couldn't do that, but I said she might have to expand her focus to take care of all animals, if she wanted to work in a zoo or something. I guess she showed me. She is working on a degree in zoology, and is spending the summer interning in an elephant sanctuary in Thailand. She's the one in the middle. She found the place, got the job, received a grant, and made all the arrangements herself. I couldn't be more proud.
