Maxine the Strong-Willed Elephant parallels the true story of an abandoned baby in Africa who found a new family at Neema House Arusha. Neema means Grace in the Swahili language and is a home for abandoned and orphaned babies in Arusha, Tanzania. Maxine was very tiny when she was born and left alone. She weighed just a little more than two pounds. After coming to Neema House, one day Maxine became very sick and Bekah, an EMT living at Neema, raced her to the hospital where the doctor said, “This baby will not make it.” Bekah replied, “Oh yes she will, she is as strong-willed as an elephant.” And so began the story of Maxine the strong-willed elephant.
