Guideposts Video: Inspiring True Stories

When Joanna McMurry’s husband surprised her with two camels, Sybil and Nadia, to add to their farm, she was shocked.

What would they do with camels?

She hand-fed them at three months old.

She stayed close to them so they would get used to her.

They became her babies.

When they grew, Nadis gave birth to a calf, Amara. Sybil had Omar and then became pregnant with her second calf last fall.

Here, Sylbil and Omar greet each other at a health care facility where they were both being treated separately.

Joanna: “It’s almost like they’re saying, ‘Oh, you’re here, too?'”

Joanna has learned a lot from her camels.
