My Gentle Barn, Creating a Sanctuary Where Animals Heal and Children Learn to Hope:

This was Ellie and her dog Simon, who was Ellie's best friend when she was a kid. They used to muck around in the lakes and watch the tadpoles turn into frogs each spring. They would walk through the woods and find salamanders and bunny rabbits and watch bats fly…
