This is a story that's hard to watch without feelings washing over you.

A cub, he was at the easy stage,
But grew too large for his home.
He was returned to his heritage,
A wild lion soon would become.

His foster parents after a year,
Traveled to his African range.
Approached his pride--no fear.
Here's the amazing exchange:

A Lion... after my own heart! What can I say, my dearest Leland, I still have a lump in my throat, from watching this marvelous video. And, although it does not seem to be a recent one, the message it imparts is timeless and oh, so beautifully true - Love knows no boundaries, and true friendships last a lifetime! To say that I loved this, is... an understatement. Thank you for sharing such a moving lesson! A "lioness" {{{{{{{hug}}}}}}} with lots and lots and lots of love,
P.S. I've saved it, so I can watch it again... and again, and again, and again!

I saw this video some weeks back, but well worth viewing again. Animals truly amaze, and they can teach us so many things, if we only open our hearts, and listen.

Hard to believe, but apparently true. Sure pulls on the heart. Thanks for sharing with this wider audience.
