    Greeting parents and caregivers of young children! It’s finally springtime and I felt compelled to share one of my favorite spring stories with you to celebrate.

She was only a day old when we found her, so we couldn’t tell if she was a boy or girl. We guessed wrong and by the time we knew for sure, the name had stuck.
