Freedom and Jeff ... An Eagle Kiss

Freedom (the eagle) and I have been together 14 years
this summer. She came in as a baby in 1998 with two
broken wings. Her left wing doesn't open all the way
even after surgery; it was broken in 4 places. She's my
baby.

When Freedom came in she could not stand and both wings
were broken. She was emaciated and covered in lice. We
made the decision to give her a chance at life, so I
took her to the vet's office. From then on, I was
always around her. We had her in a huge dog carrier
with the top off, and it was loaded up with shredded
newspaper for her to lay in. I used to sit and talk to
her, urging her to live, to fight; and she would lay
there looking at me with those big brown eyes. We also
had to tube feed her for weeks.

This went on for 4-6 weeks, and by then she still
couldn't stand. It got to the point where the decision
was made to euthanize her if she couldn't stand in a
week. You know you don't want to cross that line
between torture and rehab, and it looked like death was
winning. She was going to be put down that Friday, and
I was supposed to come in on that Thursday afternoon. I
didn't want to go to the center that Thursday, because
I couldn't bear the thought of her being euthanized;
but I went anyway, and when I walked in everyone was
grinning from ear to ear. I went immediately back to
her cage; and there she was, standing on her own, a big
beautiful eagle. She was ready to live. I was just
about in tears by then. That was a very good day.

We knew she could never fly, so the director asked me
to glove train her. I got her used to the glove, and
then to jesses, and we started doing education programs
for schools in western Washington. We wound up in the
newspapers, radio (believe it or not) and some TV.
Miracle Pets even did a show about us.

In the spring of 2000, I was diagnosed with
non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. I had stage 3, which is not
good (one major organ plus everywhere), so I wound up
doing 8 months of chemo. Lost the hair--the whole bit.
I missed a lot of work. When I felt good enough, I
would go to Sarvey and take Freedom out for walks.
Freedom would also come to me in my dreams and help me
fight the cancer. This happened time and time again.

Fast forward to November 2000.

The day after Thanksgiving, I went in for my last
checkup. I was told that if the cancer was not all gone
after 8 rounds of chemo, then my last option was a stem
cell transplant. Anyway, they did the tests; and I had
to come back Monday for the results. I went in Monday,
and I was told that all the cancer was gone.

So the first thing I did was get up to Sarvey and take
the big girl out for a walk. It was misty and cold. I
went to her flight and jessed her up, and we went out
front to the top of the hill. I hadn't said a word to
Freedom, but somehow she knew. She looked at me and
wrapped both her wings around me to where I could feel
them pressing in on my back (I was engulfed in eagle
wings), and she touched my nose with her beak and
stared into my eyes, and we just stood there like that
for I don't know how long. That was a magic moment. We
have been soulmates ever since she came in. This is a
very special bird.

On a side note: I have had people who were sick come up
to us when we are out, and Freedom has some kind of
hold on them. I once had a guy who was terminal come up
to us and I let him hold her. His knees just about
buckled and he swore he could feel her power course
through his body. I have so many stories like that.

I never forget the honor I have of being so close to
such a magnificent spirit as Freedom.

Hope you enjoyed this!

A SMALL REQUEST...Just one line. All you are asked to
do is keep this circulating, even if it's only to one
more person. In memory of anyone you know who has been
struck down by cancer, or is still living with it, or
just someone who enjoys a GREAT STORY.

Ed. Note: This story is a foretaste of what it will be
like in the millennium when Jesus has returned to
earth, and there will be a special connection with the
animal world. As God's Word says: "The wolf also shall
dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down
with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the
fatling together; and a little child shall lead them"
(Isaiah 11:6).
