family is...

When I see scenes like the ones feature below and then I read remarkable stories of animals that have adopted other animals, it's when once again I realize how us human beings are the only ones mistaken about nature, the following pictures prove that God is pure love and he shows his real face in the way of animals!!!

The above picture shows Isabella, a golden retriever in Kansas who adopted three white Bengal tiger cubs and nursed them as her own. The tiger cubs -- Nasira, Anjika and Sidani -- needed somewhere to turn because their mother stopped nursing them 15 hours after their birth. Zookeepers Tom and Allie Harvey brought the cubs home, and their dog Isabella stepped right up.

The young elk pictured above was rescued from a flooding river by a farmer in South Korea in July 2009. This female dog eagerly adopted the elk and began breastfeeding and guarding him.

Many male animals have strong parental impulses, too. Take, for instance, this wild long-tailed macaque monkey in Bali, Indonesia (picture above). He stunned animal lovers around the world when he adopted an abandoned kitten and cared for it as his own. The monkey was spotted in a forest protectively nuzzling and grooming the ginger kitten, making sure no harm came to it. The extraordinary sight was captured by amateur photographer Anne Young while on a holiday to the Monkey Forest Park in Bali's Ubud region.

Aren't this images inspiring? Pretty amazing how animals see no difference in color, shape or species when it comes to love and nurture an animal in need... So, in many cases " It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us family".

Have a great day!!!

Debbie, unfortunately in the case of humans that is not necessary true, as I constantly hear terrible stories of abortion and other atrocities against unborn humans and babies...
