Months later, Staples got a call from the BLM, offering her the chance to adopt Elsa. The twins, who had been adopted separately, arrived soon after.
The family reunion was more touching than Staples could have imagined.
“The first little twin arrived and Elsa wasn’t really sure if that was her baby because they had been separated for a couple of months by then,” Staples said. “But when the second baby arrived, she was completely transformed. She was nuzzling them, nosing them and following them and showing them their new home.”
