One of Molly’s dreams came true recently, and she was able to participate in a program at Taronga Zoo, for eight to twelve year olds, called “Zoo Keeper for a Day”.
She had the BEST time, although it was hard at first not knowing anyone else in the group. She had wanted me to hang around for the day, but it wasn’t “allowed”, which really irked me. And her. But she was very brave. The way our culture separates the children from their parents for so much of their childhood seems so…. unnecessary!
So I ended up paying too much money to wander around the zoo for the day, hoping for a glimpse of my daughter. I never saw her once!
