Kangaroo Power

My work has been the topic of recent local and (soon to be) national news. As many of you know, I work with older adults with dementia. My work also has a daycare, and somewhat of a zoo. We have many animals. Our most recent addition is a kangaroo. Yep, you read that right, we have a baby kangaroo. His name is Elliot, and he bounces around with his diaper on. He really is quite cute. Well ABC4 heard about this and did a story. You can also watch the video (I think you need to use IE, not Mozilla).
Then, this afternoon Good Morning America came to do a story on it, so we will be national. You really can't buy this kind of publicity. Meanwhile, I get to spend time with a super cute kangaroo. He is great for the residents, they really love him. He is quite therapeutic for them. You should come visit our residents, and you might get to see our new baby.
And just for fun: the Dingo ate your baby!
