A heartbreaking story has really come along and turned into one of the most heartwarming stories you will ever see.

This story has been unfolding down at the Denver Zoo where a baby orangutan is being cared for by her father after the unexpected death of the mother. Baby Cerah and her daddy are doing just fine and this story is so unique and heartwarming.

Typically male orangutans usually are not involved with their offspring but since Baby Cerah's Mom died just before Christmas, her Dad Berani has stepped up and has been giving his baby lots of love and snuggles....and it's just all sorts of adorable. (Pass the tissues please)
