For those who are missing Maia, a sleepy breakfast closeup.
Maia is doing well, and we know people worry about her being the odd man out, but we all process things at our own speed, and sometimes, that is what is needed to move on, learn our life lessons, and grow.
At times it does seem like Maia would want to be more of a part of what R&R have right now, but they would never push her away if she decided to join them. Her distance is mostly on her own terms. We still feel sad at times because we know the loss of Guida is part of what holds her back. At the same time, we also know it’s positive for her to see two other elephants have a healthy relationship with each other and still be open to her.
She may not be quite there yet, but we will have other elephants soon, and one of them may open back up that little piece of her heart she is keeping closed off. In the meanwhile, she is taking baby steps forward. Her relationship with Rana has improved, and we see tender moments with Ramba. She’ll get there, but only when she’s ready, and that’s ok. The other girls will be there when the time comes.
