Learn About Caregiving From an Injured Swan

A Lesson from a Swan

This summer I learned a lesson in caregiving from an injured swan at the Alaska Zoo.  Trumpeter swans mate for life, and they stick with their partner through migration, deprivation, and even injury. You can read more about my experience and the lesson I learned over at www.anitaojeda.com.

Seeing an injured swan exposed broken places within me from my caregiving experiences–especially for Sarah during her mental health crisis.
