For as long as I can remember I have always been fascinated with birds. It didn't matter if they were outside or in the pet store. I loved them! I would spend so much time as a kid trying to find nest in trees or as much time as my mom would let me looking at them in the pet stores dreaming of getting one someday. Once on a long car ride I remember talking with my parents about my desire to own my own pet bird. Finally the greatest day came one christmas when I finally got my own pet. But sadness soon came when an accident happened and my pet died several weeks after I got him. I was heartbroken. It was shortly after that that we met a local man that raised birds in his garage and was able to get my sweet little Sunny. I also got my first job of feeding his birds when he was gone. My most favorite job ever. Sunny lived with me for 16 years. I went thru middle school, high school, college, my first job, six different moves, meeting and marrying my sweetheart, my second job, first home and working towards a family and infertility. My pet was so much more, sunny was a friend. Since he died I have missed him greatly. After years of waiting we were finally able to find a couple of new friends that we love. Popcorn we adopted and fell in love with her. We also started to foster Baby and have fostered a few other birds but we love these cockatoos. They fit our family and are so expressive. So much fun. How wonderful it is to have them add to the adventure of our family.
