When Umande the gorilla was born at the zoo his birth mother wasn't equipped to care for him. So the workers at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs stepped in, teaching Umande the ins and outs of being a gorilla. They crawled on the floor with him, they snuggled with him, but Umande was still missing a mom. Through the dedication and persistence of these zoo workers and the workers at the Columbus Zoo, they were able to find Umande a mother. A beautiful story of adopted love, based on the true story of Umande.
