So the story goes that this family put in the paperwork to adopt a sloth before they ever even knew that baby Alia was on the way. To be honest I didn’t know you could adopt sloths (otherwise I’d have hundreds) though to be fair this family also own a kangaroo called Boomeroo, an anteater called Noche, sugar gliders (a type of possum) and a cat called Larry.
Just two days after Alia was born, Daisy was introduced into their lives and since then, they have become inseperable!
The couple had been looking for a sloth to expand their educational team when Julia fell pregnant with Alia, her first child. Julia said it felt like fate that they had welcomed their first baby and first sloth into their home on the same day.
“We had been looking for a US-born, well raised and healthy baby sloth suitable for children’s education for four years. It just so happened that the first one available to us was born just after I became pregnant with Alia, and ready for a new home just as Alia was born. Alia was two weeks late in arriving, and there was only one day we were able to have Daisy travel to us due to the weather warming up for the summer. So I believe that the events happened as God planned them. I guess he knew we could handle the work of two babies at the same time, and that it would be great for them to grow up together. When Alia and Daisy sit next to each other, Daisy sniffs Alia while Alia nuzzles into Daisy’s soft fur. They are so sweet together.”

I don’t know about you but I WANT this family (in a none creepy way of course)!!
