"Oh, my," said Valentina the Vietnamese Elephant, touching her trunk to her heart. Tears of joy nearly blinded her vision. She smiled at her newly adopted son. "You are in for a surprise, my little Volare."
"What did you see out there, Momma?" the little boy asked, stepping towards the opening among the trees. "Whoaaaa! Who are those animals coming down the hill?"
"They are all your new family, Sweetheart. They've come to welcome you home."
Volare jumped up and down. He ran to his new momma and melted into her body. He loved her the moment he saw her just a few hours ago. Mmmmm.
Valentina scooped up her new son and carried him into the open field to meet her friends, the ABC Creatures, led by the soon-to-be-married couple Thomas and Winnie.
"Momma, Momma," said Volare. "They're singing my name!"
